Question: What are good food sources of iron?
Answer:
Your body needs iron to make hemoglobin, found in red blood cells, and myoglobin, found in muscles. The best sources of iron are found in lean beef, eggs, salmon, tuna, liver, oysters, poultry (dark meat), dried fruits and beans, and whole grains.

Smaller amounts of iron can also be found in almonds and brazil nuts, as well as dark leafy greens, such as spinach, kale, collard and dandelion greens. However, it is harder for your body to absorb iron from vegetables, nuts, dried fruit, and whole grains. By pairing them with meat or fish, your body will be better able to get the full benefit of the iron vegetables, nuts, and whole grains contain.
