    Mr Grumpy becomes anemic from time to time so I have to deal with this issue, too.


    Red meat
    Egg yolks
    Dark, leafy greens (spinach, collards) also broccoli and bok choy
    Dried fruit (prunes, raisins)
    Iron-enriched cereals and grains (check the labels) - oatmeal is really good
    Mollusks (oysters, clams, scallops)
    Turkey or chicken giblets
    Beans, lentils, chick peas and soybeans
    Liver
    Artichokes

    Try to eat these with something from the citrus family as citrus enhances the absorption of iron. Try to avoid calcium at the same time as calcium binds iron and impedes its absorption.

    It used to be called "iron-poor blood," but now we know it as anemia. Whatever you call it, one way to help treat it is to eat foods rich in iron (most doctors recommend taking a supplement, too).

    To boost the amount of iron in your diet, try these foods:

    Red meat
    Egg yolks
    Dark, leafy greens (spinach, collards)
    Dried fruit (prunes, raisins)
    Iron-enriched cereals and grains (check the labels)
    Mollusks (oysters, clams, scallops)
    Turkey or chicken giblets
    Beans, lentils, chick peas and soybeans
    Liver
    Artichokes
    And here's a tip: If you eat iron-rich foods along with foods that provide plenty of vitamin C, your body can better absorb the iron.

    All the suggestions sound so much better than the one I would have given. When I was young I had a nose blood and became very anemic and the doctors told my mother to feed me liver every day. Oh, can you imagine trying to get your child to eat liver?

    Edited to add that was 50 plus years ago so we all know so much more than they did then.
