Lead Reduction Nutrition.
- Foods high in iron and calcium-lean meat,
eggs, raisins, greens, milk, cheese, fruit and potatoes--help
get lead out of a child's system. Limit foods high in
fat and oil--fried foods and snacks like potato chips--which
keep lead in a child's system.
- Do not store food in open cans or pottery.
- Run cold water for a few minutes before using
it for cooking and drinking. Do not use water from the hot water
tap for cooking, drinking, or making formula.
- Wash your children's hands before they eat.
