  • That is basically low iron, correct? Anything that is high in iron is a good for them. Chicken liver is very high in iron, this is what I eat often. I have this myself so I eat the crap out of the liver :)

    Dairy can leach iron from the body; avoid it until your child's anemia is under control. Here is some info on calcium:
