Can anyone recommend an iron supplement for my almost 2 year old?
She is an OK eater but I really worry about her iron intake, especially at the moment as she has suddenly increased her milk consumption (we were down to one 150ml bottle at bed time) due to a number of reasons (she was sick and went off food, only wanted milk, this coincided with her starting daycare where they gave her several bottles while she was there to placate her, despite my informing them she may only want a small one for comfort at nap time). So anyway she's having about 500 ml a day now. Is this too much?
So is there a toddler/iron supplement I can give her?
And any tips/food ideas to increase her consumption? She isn't really a big meat eater ( she enjoys beef mince in spaghetti which I add spinach to as well, plus grated veg) but she is more of a grazer type eater, she likes little platters with chopped fruit, ham, veg etc. But she still eats like a little sparrow, she doesn't tend to hoe into her meals with gusto, just a nibbler!
