|Wholegrain cereals are a good source of iron. However, it is difficult for our bodies to absorb iron from a non-meat source (red meat provides the most easily absorbed form of iron). To improve the absorption of iron from breakfast cereal you will need to give your child vitamin-C rich fruit, like kiwi or berry fruits, or vitamin-C rich juice, like orange or cranberry juice.
