Q: What are the symptoms of iron deficiency in kids?
A: Slowed growth and development, poor appetite, fatigue, unusual cravings for non-food substances and pale skin as haemoglobin levels decline are all signs and symptoms of iron deficiency. Iron deficiency can also put kids at risk for infection.
Q: What could put your child at higher risk for an iron deficiency?
A: Kids who are picky eaters, on a vegetarian or vegan diet, ingest too much cow's milk, are exposed to lead, or young kids born to iron-deficient moms are examples of those at higher risk.
