We went through this with my daughter, there are iron fortified cereals just check the labels. Spinach is high in iron, egg whites, and beans. When feeding foods high in iron feed them with foods that are high in vitamin C it helps the body absorb the iron. Below is the website for the red cross that lists a whole bunch of foods you can feed in place of red meat that are high in iron.
