Pregnancy, Iron and a Vegetarian Diet

what to eat:

L.M. from Bunbury, Western Australia asks:

“I am pregnant (and vegetarian), and my iron is getting low. What foods/food combinations are best for boosting my iron intake?”

My reply:

“Pregnant vegetarians should choose high iron foods like whole grains, legumes, tofu, and green leafy vegetables daily and consume them with foods rich in vitamin C to increase the bioavailability of the iron.”
