Q.

iron supplement

Hi
I am giving my 23month old son Floradex Iron supplement, or at least I try to give it to him. My question is, does rooibos tea interfere with iron absorption. He drinks a lot of rooibos tea it is his favourite. I stuggle to get him to take it, has anyone got any tips on how to get it into him. Can I put it in his food or drink? I' ve tried a syringe, not working so well.

Thanks
Mommy
