Packed with iron: Eating poha regularly can prevent iron deficiency or anaemia as it contains 20mg of iron in every 100g raw rice flakes. Children as well as pregnant and lactating women can benefit greatly by consuming it. Sufficient iron helps the body to form haemoglobin that carries oxygen to body cells and also builds immunity. Squeeze a cut lemon on the poha as it helps improve iron absorption.
A complete meal: Mixed vegetables can be added to poha to make it rich in vitamins, minerals and fibre. Adding sprouts, soya nuggets, peanuts and even boiled eggs can make it a well-balanced and high-protein meal.
