Summer is here! Like me, I’m sure you’re ready to say goodbye to winter and finally enjoy the hot weather. As we head into summer weekends, here are some ideas on ways to enjoy the food, fun and sun while making sure you and your family are keeping up your iron intake.
Strawberries? Brussel sprouts? Yes, please! Vitamin C helps your body to better absorb iron. Add these Vitamin C rich foods to your plate or glass this weekend to help you better absorb your iron. As an added bonus, some of these foods are locally grown in the summer!
Hosting a BBQ this weekend? Here are 10 clever ways to get your fussy eaters to eat more iron – #3 and #4 sound like a perfect addition to a backyard fiesta!
We’re hitting the halfway point for the year. If you made a new year’s resolution to eat better in 2015, consider adding these superfoods to your plate this weekend!

Cheers to the weekend!
