Q.

Iron

Hi Doc

My son of 2 year has just stoped drinking milk...I breastfed Him up to 14 months then switched to Nido after that...

I have never given Him any iron supplements before...

Please advise on which one is suitable for his age..

he doesnt eat much of the iron fortified foods.

Thanks a lot for your help.

It is not necessary to give your son extra iron. He will get the iron he needs in his diet.Meat,chicken, fish,leafy vegetables and nuts all are rich in iron.
