Anemia :: Iron deficiency anemia in children – tips

If your child’s been diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia, following tips are offered by The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia:

– To make your child’s medicine more palatable, mix it with one ounce of apple or orange juice, as chilren like the fruit juices.

– Wipe the teeth after each dose to prevent discoloration of the enamel.

– Give your child foods high in iron, including meats, fish, chicken, raisins, dried fruits, sweet potatoes, greens, lima beans, chili beans, green peas, and peanut butter.

– Infant formulas have iron, but regular milk does not. Don’t give children under the age of one year regular milk without first talking to your child’s doctor.
