I have issues with iron deficiency also. Hot cereals like Cream of Wheat and Malt O Meal have a lot of iron in them. I like them with a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses. Together they give you a good iron boost at the start of your day.

supplements? i only mention them because i struggle with chronic iron deficiency anemia due to my monthly cycle...
Hemp Hearts --- 30% RDA for 30g --- I add them to cereals, salads, baked goods, and casseroles. They have a very light, almost sweet grassy flavour.
Blackstrap Molasses --- 19.4% RDA for 1 Tbsp --- I use it in sauces for meats and stirfries, as well as use it as a sweetener in almost anything. It has a very strong flavour which I enjoy, but a lot of folks have an issue with it.
Quinoa --- 15% RDA for 1/4 cup uncooked --- I use it to replace rice, make salads, add to soups, or in cereal.
Dark Chocolate --- 10% RDA for 30g --- as if chocolate needed any other reasons to be eaten!
