Iron Awareness Week 2019

Iron Awareness Week 2019 – Facilitated by Beef + Lamb New Zealand.

Don’t believe you need red meat to get enough iron. Science has shown vegetarians are no more likely to have iron deficiency than anyone else.

Vegetarians who eat a varied and well-balanced diet are not at any greater risk of iron deficiency anaemia than non-vegetarians (Saunders, 2012).
