TIPS FOR YOU

Max­imise iron ab­sorp­tion.

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURES -

Eat foods high in iron with vi­ta­min C-rich foods as vi­ta­min C helps the body ab­sorb iron. E.g. red meat with vi­ta­min C-rich sweet potato.

Choose lean cuts of red meat, and trim all vis­i­ble fat to re­duce your sat­u­rated fat in­take. Tea and cof­fee de­crease the iron your body ab­sorbs, so drink them sep­a­rate to meal­times.
