DS (3) had his blood checked today and they said his iron levels were low. He was just under 11 and normal is 11-12 or 12-13 (something like that). I'd blow it off but anemia runs heavily on DH's side and I don't want this to be a permanent issue.
Looking at DS's diet, he eats really healthy, lots of veggies, soy, meats, fruits, etc... and we can add more iron rich foods - though with a toddler, there is no guarantee he'll eat them. -- I did find that watermelon was an iron rich food - almost as much iron as liver!
Do you supplement your toddlers with vitamins? If so what ones? I'd like to consider the option (can't get watermelon all year!)
Are there any good natural/organic vitamins for toddlers? DH is totally agains vitamins as they are mostly synthetic and "unnatural." I'd like to present him with some better choices for DS.
