Fe Deficiency - Commonest nutritional problem in under 3s

Infants and toddlers have the greatest risk of iron deficiency. Severe iron deficiency causes anaemia and sometimes developmental problems. Poor dietary iron is the commonest cause, and unfortunately symptoms and signs of iron deficiency are absent unless there is anaemia. The ingestion of large amounts of cow’s milk after 12 months is the main contributory cause. More than 500mls per day is a risk factor for Fe deficiency.
