My child has had low iron levels for more than 1 year and a pale face. Does this mean she to eat more meat?

In brief: Not necessarily.
Green leafy vegetables also have a fair amount of iron.

In brief: Supplement?
Yes you can get iron in our foods but if your child has been low for a year i would consider iron supplement to correct the anemia.
There may be an iron absobtion problem or other reasons for the iron deficiency. Talk with your doctor.
