A tip for ‘Meatless Monday’: Vegetarian sources of iron are more difficult for your body to absorb, so combine iron sources like chickpeas, lentils, tofu, cereals, green leafy veg, nuts and seeds with a rich source of vitamin C to maximise iron absorption.

For example, have a piece of fruit with your cereal, a rich tomatoey chickpea stew or a tofu, broccoli and capsicum stir fry.
