Prevention 

You as nurse needs to ensure that iron supplementation  is given to children who are at risk for iron deficiency.  Iron supplementation  should start between 4 and 8 weeks. Iron rich foods like banana, eggs, liver, fish, meat, leafy vegetables, peas, spinach, methi, cereals  and pulses should be included in the daily diet.

Oral iron administration to infants and young children generally helps  in treatment of iron deficiency anaemia provided correct dosage is given and if there is adequate absorption.
