Diet & iron pills: Sources of iron - egg yolks, molasses, raisin bran, raisins, prunes, dried apricots, figs, kidney beans, pinto beans, navy beans, lentils, split green peas, enriched cereals, enriched macaroni, spinach, greens, broccoli, lima beans, avocado. Cook in a cast iron pan. The following foods can help your body absorb iron better: orange, cantaloupe, strawberries, grapefruit, broccoli, brussels sprouts.

Dietary iron: Spinach, black strap molasses, and dark greens have high iron content. If you take it with orange juice, that increases your absorption. Taking iron supplements with oj also helps. Red meat is the another source.
