Hi!Get your child seen by a paediatrician.she is malnorished also. Initially, to make up for the deficit, iron supplements are advised. But gradually, taper the dependence.You can start Lohasavam 2 tsf twice daily after meals.
Good sources of iron are- whole wheat, brown rice, green leafy vegetable (spinach, broccoli. Cabbage, fenugreek, lettuce), beet, cherries, tomatoes, dates, figs.
