Dear Celia
If this lady is suffering from iron deficiency then she should take an iron-folic acid supplement like Ferro-Folic and also eat foods that are rich in iron: liver, red meat, fish, egg yolk, whole grains and cereals esp iron-fortified breakfast cereals, and dried fruit. She should also drink a glass of orange juice or eat half a grapefruit with her breakfast cereal as the vit C in the citrus helps with the absorption of iron.
Best regards
