Not every body needs the same amount of iron daily, and too much iron is a health issue, so make sure you incorporate the Better Iron Evaluation as part of your consult.

How do I use the Better Nutrition Iron Menu?
Invite your client to follow the Better Nutrition Iron Menu exactly as written, or use it as a guide. Review your client’s progress each day to see how much iron each better nutrition pit stop delivers for them!
How much iron does each recipe within the Better Nutrition Iron Menu provide?
For recipes that make more than one serving, we did the math for you so the “total” number is for one serving.
Are there any foods that my client should eat or avoid to improve iron absorption?
Vitamin C helps aid the absorption of iron. A healthy digestive system is also important for any nutrient to get where it needs to go. While many iron supplements can trigger constipation, it us unlikely that food sources will create an issue. Consuming supplemental calcium at the same time as iron can make it harder for iron absorption, so recommend that your client take his/her supplements at a different time.
