Our expert says:
The enlarged red blood cells are usually associated with Vitamin B12 and folate deficiency. This is called megaloblastic anemia. Refer to the following link for more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megaloblastic_anemia
The enlarged red blood cells can also be associated with kidney disease and I therefore, suggest that you consult your doctor for blood tests and if your Vitamin B levels are extremely low, you will need injections to correct your levels.
You can supplement with Centrum Multivitamin, in combination with Vitamin B complex and Folate acid.
For the child, I suggest Echinaforce.
