Anemia in kids?

Ryan had to get bloodwork done for allergies and his CBC came back showing that he was slightly anemic -- no other issues.

He is pale, always has been, and he doesn't eat very much.  So it makes sense.  I am wondering if anyone else has had this happen, and what you did to "treat" it.  I know meats and green veggies have iron . . . anything else?

Also can you rec your child's multivitamin?  Ryan has them but doesn't usually take them . . . our fault . . .

Re: Anemia in kids?

  • my son had it slightly too- after his 1 yr old bloodwork. We upped his meats and veggies. At the time we just did the Enfamil multivitamin drops. Six months later we did the bloodwork again and he was fine. I wouldn't worry much. I'm sure he'll be OK. I too wasn't surprised because my son is very pale too and eats like a bird as well.

  • We use prescription vitamins. They have everything we want and work out cheaper.  You can ask his Dr.

    Im most worried that we are going to have to do bloodwork every year now . . . What a total nightmare that was!  It's been 36 hours and I am still recovering from the trauma.  Lol.
