Vegetarian sources (called non-haem iron) include pulses, sprouts, dry fruits, and green leafy vegetables. Non-vegetarian sources (called haem iron) such as lean red meat, fish and poultry. Eggs are also a good source of iron. Calcium: Eat at least three daily servings of calcium-rich foods such as milk and other dairy products, fish, dark green leafy vegetables, almonds, or calcium-fortified foods like cereals, juices, soy and rice beverages, and breads. Vitamin D: sun exposure helps your body produce vitamin D, but many women don't get enough sun to make an adequate amount. Good sources are oily fish such as salmon (ravaas), mackerel (bangda) and sardines (pedvey). Red meat, egg yolks and fortified breakfast cereals also provide some vitamin D. Vitamin C: It helps your body to absorb iron better. Citrus fruits, Indian gooseberry (amla), guava (amrood) and papaya (papita) are a good source of vitamin C. Vitamin A: Carrots (gajar), eggs, sweet potato (shakarkandi), dark leafy greens, pumpkin (kaddu), red capsicum (laal shimla mirch), peas (matar), tomato (tamatar) and mango (aam) are rich in vitamin A.
