The following is taken from Babycentre:

"How can I prevent anemia in my baby?
You can prevent or treat the type of anemia caused by iron deficiency by making sure that your baby gets enough iron. What to do:
• Determine whether your baby is at high risk for anemia. Risk factors include premature birth or low birth weight, inadequate iron in your own diet if you're breastfeeding, or a lack of iron-fortified formula in a formula-fed baby's diet. If you're concerned, ask your baby's doctor whether it would be a good idea to adjust her diet or add a supplement.

• Breastfeed your baby for as long as you can. Breast milk contains a special form of iron that's more easily absorbed than the iron in other foods.

• Don't feed your baby cow's milk before age 1. Cow's milk is low in iron and can irritate the lining of your baby's intestines, causing tiny losses of iron over time.

• Feed your baby iron-fortified cereal, and starting around 8 months, introduce other foods rich in iron like beans, spinach, and lean meats and poultry.

• Give your baby foods rich in vitamin C to help iron absorption. Some good choices: fruits and vegies in general, pureed."

What kellie said, give foods high in iron, but you also need Vit C to be able to digest the iron.
