Iron dosing in children: Adopted from Canadian Peadiatric Surveillance Program (CPSP) resource for Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) in children

Primary Prevention of IDA in children:

The Nutrition and Gastroenterology Committee of the Canadian Paediatric Society recommendation:


Age of child

Required iron intake/ day

5-12 months

7 mg/day

1-3 years

6 mg/day

4-12 years

8 mg/day


Secondary Prevention of IDA in children:

The AAP (The American Academy of Pediatrics) recommendation:


Screen with hemoglobin at 12 months. If the Hb level is less than 110 g/L at 12 months, additional screening tests should include measurement of serum ferritin plus CRP levels, or CHr concentration.


Treatment of IDA in children:


Recommended Therapeutic dose of iron

6 mg/kg/day of elemental iron, for three to four months and then follow up


When IDA is identified, the family should be counseled regarding the importance of limiting the total daily milk intake and increasing iron-rich foods, including those with vitamin C that improves iron absorption, and avoiding foods that impair iron absorption such as tea. Children with IDA should also receive iron supplementation.
