Eating poha regularly can prevent iron deficiency or anaemia as it cobtains 20 mg of iron in every 100 gm red rice flakes. Children and pregnant and lactating women can benefit greatly by consuming it. Softened poha or beaten red rice is also a great idea to add dietary iron when an infant is weaned for breastmilk. Squeeze a cut lemon on the poha as it helps in iron absorption.
