Iron is very important for growing infants and children. Low iron can lead to behavioural problems including tantrums, ADHD-like behaviours, and sleep problems as well as physical development issues like failure to thrive, short stature, and poor grades at school. Iron also helps build a strong immune system to fight illness and infection.

Many iron supplements irritate the digestive system causing constipation, diarrhea, nausea, and cramping. You don’t have to worry about these side effects with BioFe™.

Like all KidStar™ nutrients, their iron supplements are pure and do not contain sugar, artificial colours, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavours, soy, gluten, benzoates and GMOs.

How Much Iron do Kids Need?

To prevent iron deficiency anemia, supplement with the following dose:

  • Children 7 months to 13 years – 10 mg iron daily
  • Girls 14 to 18 years – 15 mg daily
  • Boys 14 to 18 years – 10 mg daily
  • Pregnancy – 30 mg daily
  • Lactating – 10 mg daily

The doses recommended above are for elemental iron. Elemental iron is the total amount of iron available for absorption by your body. Always look for the elemental amount of iron when choosing an iron supplement.

If your child is diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia your health care provider will recommend a therapeutic dose as a treatment for anemia. Therapeutic doses will be higher than what is recommended above.
