How to eat the baby’s iron supplement? For iron supplement recipes for 0 ~ 6 years old, it is enough to read this one.

When the baby is 6 months old, parents should pay attention to one thing.

Give the baby iron.

Today, Dr. Clove invited his good friend, spicy mom Li Liangli, to recommend some high-speed rail complementary foods to his parents. Follow suit and don’t worry about the baby’s iron deficiency any more!

0 ~ 6 months

When a full-term baby is born, it brings iron from the mother’s body that can meet her needs for 4-6 months of growth, so there is no need to supplement additional iron before adding supplementary foods (except for premature infants or mothers with severe iron deficiency during pregnancy).

After 4 ~ 6 months, the baby’s iron reserves begin to be insufficient. Mothers should add iron-rich supplementary foods in time, such as high-speed iron baby rice noodles, to ensure the healthy growth and development of the baby.

6 ~ 12 months

About 6 months old, the baby began to eat supplementary foods. The most convenient thing for the mother is high-speed rice noodles.

That what, Hunan, Guangxi friends don’t get excited, not your kind of rice noodles (pick nose) …

High-iron rice noodles can be mixed with water, breast milk or milk powder. Other high-iron foods include red meat paste, liver paste, chicken and duck meat, fish, etc. The iron in these foods is easy to absorb and should be added in time without allergy.
