Vegetarians have made a conscious choice to take meats out of their diet. Along with that choice, they're taking away the best option of iron-rich foods. Don't worry, because you can make food choices to put iron back into the vegetarian diet. Vegetarians should eat iron-rich foods that include seeds, nuts, eggs, dark leafy vegetables, prunes, dried beans and raisins. Vegetarians should choose to eat cereals and breads that are iron-rich or fortified with iron.
