Vegetables are a major source of vitamins, minerals, and fibers; their nutritive and medicinal values in human life are well documented. Vegetables are a very important part of a good diet as they contain various nutrients for many body functions. These vegetables also provide taste, palatability, better digestibility to us, and increase the appetite. Due to heavy workload and lack of nutritious vegetables in daily diet farm women face deficiencies of various nutrients specially iron deficiency anemia. Iron deficiency is the most prevalent deficiency in the world. It is estimated that it affects 40 % of the world’s population most of whom are women and children. Iron deficiency accounts for 50 % of the global burden of anemia and is the leading cause of anemia in Asia.
