Which Iron Supplement?
Posted 26 January 2013 - 04:09 PM
Her iron was also low (I don't know what the number was) and the doctor told us to give her a supplement. Any suggestions? I bought Floravital at Pharmaca today because that's what they suggested, but I worry that she's going to hate it. (If it does work out well, I see now that I can pay a lot less online...)
The only other thing I've found for kids is the Flintstones multi with iron. Are there other options?

We did end up switching to a chewable, mostly because it was easier to carry with us if needed (and also because the Floravital does ferment over time (you have to throw it out after 4 weeks) and I could tell it was starting to taste funny to him after about 3 weeks. We are currently using Natural Factor's Easy Iron chewables. They are peach flavored and he really likes them--we cut them in half to split the dose up throughout the day. We were told to do the Flintstones vitamins, too, but I wasn't comfortable with the form of iron they contain (constipating, at least for some children)...or the artificial colors and sweeteners added to them.
I also read good things about Nature's Plus Chewables; I just couldn't find them locally, but you could get them online.
