When it comes to the absorption of zinc, milk can be a chief source of the mineral. Milk inhibits absorption of zinc by binding with zinc ions. Cereals and soy also do the same. The absorption of heme and non-heme iron in the body is also facilitated by calcium, which is found in milk, cheese, tofu, fish, and other similar foods.

For absorption of zinc you need to be aware of foods that contain phylate or cadmium as they can inhibit it. Another commenter mentioned cereals, but also corn and rice have significant amounts.

Not consuming foods rich in iron and zinc can lead to such problems.
