Nutrition and Food Prep

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.
