Fruity, iron-rich toddler snack

I want Kittenpie to make me lunch. This is the second cool food tip she's sent in. Here's how she ups her kid's iron intake:

Our doctor recommended the continued use of iron-fortified baby cereal into her second year because toddler iron needs are so high, so now we add flavoured baby cereal flakes to plain natural yogurt and sweeten this blend with baby food fruit puree, figuring it is pure fruit, no additives. Since she is so into her "sauces" we just call it fruit and yogurt sauce to get the first bite in, and then it is so yummy she gobbles it all.
