What are we telling people!?

I was recently informed by my midwife that I had slightly low iron levels. They were not low enough warrant my taking supplements but I was advised to eat more green vegetables. I was horrified, although not totally surprised by this advice. I would have to eat a lot of green veg to improve my iron levels but health professionals continue to promote green veg as good sources of iron.

We need to get the right messages to pregnant women but with antenatal programmes being cut we rely on good advice from midwives about healthy eating.

Any thoughts?
