Also soybeans, lentils, chickpeas, black-eyed peas, kidney beans, etc. Blackstrap molasses has 7.2mg/2 tablespoons too (slightly more than a cup of lentils -- I didn't know that until now!). Iceberg lettuce is not as iron-rich as other leafy greens.

Popeye was right...: ...Spinach has plenty of iron. Of course, if the cause of anemia is not nutritional deficiency, it won't work as well.
