I have low iron and would like to know what foods are high in iron.
There are a lot of great, healthy foods that are high in iron. Here's a link to a short list of foods, (PDF) along with iron requirements by age and gender, to get you started.
Here's a handout from the USDA (PDF) that has the iron content of most foods.
Thanks for writing,
