Ds 6 has low iron stores. Paed has recommended iron liquid.
I was also thinking to give him vitamin C to help absorb the iron.
One brand (kids chewable gum lolly) has 65mg
Another brand (hard tablet that can chewed down) has 200mg (children over 2yrs can have it).
But I'm not really sure which one I should choose?
I don't want him to overdose on vitamin C.

Vitamin C supplements question

I like cenovis. It's a hard tablet but tastes like a lolly. I don't think you can overdose on Vit C - you pee out the excess I think.

What's the amount of mg per tablet and does your child have it too?

Adult dose tablets are 500-1000mg, so I would assume 200mg will be fine for an average 6yo.
If the dose is too high you get the runs.

We always take a vitamin C tablet in winter, DH and I take 1000mg, DS takes 500mg daily ( has done since he was 2) - ours is naturopath prescribed - it is hard to overdose on vitamin C , but maybe check with a naturopath or your pead

Also ask the pharmacist. I personally used to take the blackmores brand.
