What’s The Deal with Heme Iron Anyway?
Let’s begin by busting some myths and getting real about some facts. Myth 1: You need meat to beat anemia and iron deficiency. Nobody needs to eat meat to avoid iron deficiency and anemia. However, you do need to eat more plants than meat and be more conscientious of food pairings to meet your iron requirements. Myth 2: Vegans and Vegetarians are NOT at Increased risk of iron deficiency and anemia. Sorry, but unfortunately, science disagrees and biology is gender discriminatory. In the vast majority of studies, female vegans and vegetarians have a higher prevalence of iron deficiency and anemia than both their meat-eating counter parts and male vegans and vegetarians.

True Health Initiative breaks it down.

Encourage your kids to eat healthfully and exercise while having fun! Healthy children grow into healthy adults. Mindful children grow into mindful adults. Children raised with an understanding of the relationship between mind, body, and the food we eat grow into adults who love the food that loves them back, and love the bodies they’ve grown up in. Joy Bauer’s new book, Yummy Yoga: Playful Poses and tasty Treats is about health in the fullest sense- mind, body and community. This book makes yoga fun while making fruits and vegetables extra yummy for children, and adults too.
