Event Hosting & Giveaway – Iron Rich Foods under Kids Delight Series

Its been a while since I hosted events at my blog. I had
signed up for Valli’s Kids Delight series long ago, and here I am hosting her event with a
special theme of Iron Rich Recipes.. yes, it comes with a giveaway too 🙂

Dried beans and dark green leafy vegetables are
especially good sources of iron, even better on a per calorie basis than meat.
Iron absorption is increased markedly by eating foods containing vitamin C
along with foods containing iron. Vegetarians do not have a higher incidence of
iron deficiency than do meat eaters.Iron is an essential nutrient because it is
a central part of hemoglobin, which carries oxygen in the blood. Iron
deficiency anemia is a worldwide health problem that is especially common in young
women and in children.

Iron is found in food in two forms, heme and
non-heme iron. Heme iron, which makes up 40 percent of the iron in meat,
poultry, and fish, is well absorbed. Non-heme iron, 60 percent of the iron in
animal tissue and all the iron in plants (fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts) is
less well absorbed. Because vegan diets only contain non-heme iron, vegans
should be especially aware of foods that are high in iron and techniques that
can promote iron absorption. Recommendations for iron for vegetarians
(including vegans) may be as much as 1.8 times higher than for
non-vegetarians  (Source –
