Vitamin C helps to absorb iron better.You should at least consume 85-90gm of Vitamin C per day to meet the nutritional requirement of the body during pregnancy and about 120-125gm per day during lactation. The best food sources include citrus fruits like orange and lemon, potatoes, broccoli, brussel sprouts, tomatoes, tomato juice, cauliflower, cabbage, and spinach.
