Q:

#weaning
If we are giving pomegranates and grapes to the toddlers on daily basis do we still need to give a supplementary iron medicine? My doc had advised it for my kids some time back but since am giving them a good iron rich diet, is a supplement really required?



Sonali Shivlani

If meals are complete then most kids do not need a supplement. However if you find them pale or lethargic then you can have a test done to check HB levels and then decide.

Neha Suryawanshi

If meals are rich in iron then you don't need to give supplements
