Ok, DD just got re tested for lead and she is still low in iron. I have her on a multi-vitamin with iron and attempt to get her to eat more red meat but she isn't interested in meat as a whole. Doesn't like broccoli. Need some ideas for toddler interesting foods to get more iron into her otherwise her lead levels won't drop much. (she's not toxic, at a 6 but needs to be below 5)

Smoothies: frozen banana, frozen blueberries, Kale (lots of iron and calcium), kiwi or orange juice or another source of vitamin C (to increase the absorption of iron), yogurt. Beans and lentils are great sources of iron.
