PMB RY Panongan District, Tangerang Regency, the target data for anemic pregnant women in 2020 is 13.6%; in 2021 it is 14.6% and in 2022 it is 15.8%. Prevention of anemia in pregnancy apart from Fe supplements can also be done by consuming foods that contain iron, such as dragon fruit and beets.

 Methods: Quasi-experimental design with pretest-posttest design with control group design. The sample is pregnant women who experience anemia in January-February 2023 as many as 30 samples using a purposive sampling technique. The intervention was given 250g once a day for 14 days. Bivariate analysis used paired sample t-test and independent t-test.
