Lack of iron in the diet causes a condition called Iron Deficiency Anemia. Less iron makes one feel lazy and growth is also slowed in kids.

To keep iron deficiency anemia at bay one needs to consume recipes like Cauliflower Greens and Besan Muthia and Spinach Mushroom Sabzi Kids enjoy eating bhel and we have a unique healthy variation Oats and Poha Sukha Bhel which is loaded with iron.
