Q.

can i give my toddler some calcium supplements since he has CMA?

My son was diagnosed with CMA since he was 2 months, he's been on alfare and pepticate but now he doesn't like this formula anymore. I'm worried about his bones and teeth since he is still young,i feel like he is not getting enough calcium and its difficult to make him eat dark leafy veges

Yes,it is a very good idea to give your toddler son a good calcium supplement. The GNC brand available at Clicks gives you a choice of a chewable tablet or a gummy form of calcium supplement.
