800 calorie diet, found out i'm anaemic, the iron pills are making me constipated and i don't want to eat meat because i'm vegan, what should I do?

If your doc has explored the issues with your kids FTT and suggests a supplement, it is worth a try.

Yes, it's OK: This is fine, though at 400 calories it does not sound like your biggest meal (unless you are having more than 3 meals).
