hello mrs meena,well you can give him honey if he likes it,but its not a good source of iron. the best source of iron is red meat-mutton/lamb/goat/beef/pork.also include lots of vitamin c rich foods in diet as these are proven to increase iron absorption-foods like fresh fruit juices,lemon,orange etc.if your son is slightly anemic ,you can make it up with iron rich diets,but if it is to a severe degree-i suggest you take him to a general practitioner for iron suppliments.but do not ignore this problem as iron is essential for childrens' brain development. cheers
