Q.

Iron suppliment

Hi Doc!

I have a 3 year old toddler &  10 month old baby. When I was pregnant with both of them I was told that I was a bit animic. Chela Fer was prescribed, a number of times as I was growing up I was told that I was animic. What can I give my kids i.e. iron suppliment to boost them? I notices that there is vidalyn drops for 4 year old &  up with added iron.

Regards,

As long as your 3 year old eats a good mixed diet with meat and vegetables you do not need to give any additional iron.If your 10 month old baby is on a formula you will find that it contains additional iron so again you do not need to give any iron.
