In brief: Many ways

Dietary sources of iron come in two forms.
Heme iron occurs in animal products like red meat, liver, fish and poultry. Heme iron is the most easily absorbed type of iron, although it is much less common than non-heme iron, which is present in beans, lentils, spinach, tofu and raisins. Non-heme iron is also added to fortified foods like cereals, breads and oatmeal.
