Hello as your father has under give through splenectomy he would have tendency to be anaemic. But for that you cab increase the intake if food rich in iron, folate,  protien which will help in formation of RBC. Try to incorporate dates, black raisins, dried figs,  pomegranate, apple,  green leafy vegetables.
If you can eat non vegetarian foods give eggs,     chicken.
