No foods will: There are some medicines which we use in order to increase the white blood count but we need to know more about your circumstances. So ask this question to your doctor who is looking after you as he/she probably knows why your WBC count is low and if it is low enough to be treated or high enough to be left alone.

Leukocytosis: No particular foods raise white counts but several medications can: glucocorticoids like prednisone, Filgrastim (filgrastin) (or gcsf), and lithium are the most notorious suspects. Another common cause of leukocytosis (other than infection) is cigarette smoking. Even marked obesity can cause a high white cell count.
