Nature's One® continually monitors questions that are received from customers regarding different topics and attempts to educate and inform to the best of our abilities using solid resources such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, National Institute of Health or The American Medical Association. A question that is consistently asked is what amount of iron is needed in an infant / toddler's diet?
In May 2009, an article was published in Contemporary Pediatrics regarding iron deficiency in toddlers. Below is the link to that particular article, as well as responses and suggestions from two physicians in the July issue. Please note, the original article was written by Alvin N. Eden, MD Representing AAP NY 2 Subcommittee on Toddler Iron Deficiency.
