Too little iron can impair your child's ability to function. However, most signs and symptoms of iron deficiency in children don't appear until iron deficiency anemia occurs. If your child has risk factors for iron deficiency, talk to his or her doctor.

Signs and symptoms of iron deficiency anemia might include:
        •  Pale skin
        •  Fatigue or weakness
        •  Slow cognitive and social development
        •  Inflammation of the tongue
        •  Difficulty maintaining body temperature
        •  Increased likelihood of infections
        •  Unusual cravings for non-nutritive substances, such as ice, dirt or pure starch
