Iron Rich Dry Snacks / Jar Snacks

Crunchy jar snacks add a lot of excitement to our day. They are the best options to reach out for in the evening time.

Try the non-fried version of famous Bengali Nimki  - Palak Jeera NimkiBaked Kachodi and Bajra Khakhras. These are sure to prevent iron deficiency fatigue and keep you energized till the next meal.

However remember to not pair these jar snacks with a cup of tea or coffee. The tannins in these beverages bind with the iron, making it less of it available to your body.
