Dear Ethel
You don't mention how old the child is and if it is already appropriate for her to eat these foods, e.g. older than 6 months. I think it may be a good idea to have the little one assessed by a dietitian because vitamin and mineral supplements cannot take the place of a balanced diet. Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area. The dietitian will work out a balanced diet for the lassie and also make suggestions about how to stimulate her appetite. There are quite a number of vitamin and mineral supplements available for children and the dosage once again depends on her age. Ask your chemist which supplements he/she recommends, e.g. Vidaylin, Kiddivite, etc.
