All it takes to ensure your daughter gets her daily nutrition is some poshan through portion every day!

Drinking citrus juice or eating other foods rich in vitamin C while you’re eating iron rich foods increases the body’s iron absorption. Serve a glass of orange or lemon juice along with your daughter’s meal, or make her eat amla or guava at breakfast or at snack time.

In vegetarian and vegan diets, iron absorption may be optimized by including vitamin C-containing vegetables during meals. Remember, the leafier and greener they are – the better!
