The Best Iron Supplements for Kids, Infants, & Toddlers
Children's growing bodies need proper nutrition to ensure optimal health and wellness. Unfortunately, few kids get all the nutrients they need from diet alone. Iron deficiencies, in particular, can be detrimental, impeding growth and potentially increasing the risk of infections, weak muscles, learning challenges, behavioral issues, and other problems.
Finding the best iron supplements for kids can be challenging. Fortunately, Pharmics carries the high-quality over-the-counter kids iron supplements you need for every stage of your child's life, including liquid iron for kids, chewable iron, and easy-to-digest iron supplements.
Does Your Child Need Iron Supplements?
Both the U.S. National Institutes for Health (NIH) and the American Association of Pediatrics (AAP) stress the importance of iron supplements for kids.
According to the NIH, infants and young children face a significant risk of iron deficiency, especially if the child was born pre-term or had a low birth weight. Iron supplementation for infants becomes critical at six to nine months of age due to the physiological requirements of their rapid growth.
According to the AAP, human breast milk is a poor source of iron. If your child is breast-fed, he or she faces an increased risk of IDA. The AAP recommends giving a liquid iron supplement to breast-fed infants.
Toddlers, preschoolers, children, and teenagers all need iron.
Liquid Iron Supplements for Kids
A liquid iron supplement is appropriate for children up to 14 years of age but can be dosed for any age category.
Pharmics' liquid iron supplement is gluten-free, dye-free, and easy on little ones' tummies. Its delightful black cherry flavor tastes great alone or mixed with formula, juice, or soft foods.
Our unique blend is made for maximum tolerance and absorption, ensuring your infant or toddler gets the amount of iron their growing body and mind need for optimal health.
Tablets & Chewable Iron Supplements for Children
Our chewable iron tablets are ideal for children 14 and up who are not ready or unable to swallow regular tablets. Ferretts chewable iron tablets are easy-to-digest iron supplements that won't cause constipation. They don't have the unpleasant, metallic aftertaste that many products have, so you won't have to battle with your child to get them the nutritional support they need for health and well-being.
For kids and teens, our Ferretts over-the-counter children's iron supplements are an easy and affordable way to support good health as well as brain and body development.
For girls who have begun menstruation, the NIH recommends an average daily iron intake of 15 mg. For girls with heavy menstrual bleeding, these requirements may be even higher.
Talk to your doctor or healthcare practitioner to determine the proper dosage for your children throughout their early lives.
