Foods which are dark red in color have high iron content and good in producing blood cells. Rosella can be obtained from markets and very suitable to be made as cordial drinks. Break the petals and remove the seeds. Boil the petals with brown or white sugar to a thick consistency. Serve this drink to your children when they are thirsty. Do not throw the seeds away.
