IRON DEFICIENCY IN CHILDREN

Iron is an important dietary mineral which is essential for the growth and development of kids- both physical and mental growth. Iron helps form hemoglobin that is found in the blood cells of the body. It has a red color pigment which gives the blood cells its color, commonly known as red blood cells. These red blood cells have hemoglobin which is responsible for carrying oxygen from lungs to different parts of the body. Hemoglobin is formed of iron containing part known as heme and protein part as globin. Without hemoglobin, the body stops producing healthy red blood cells and often shows weaker coloured cells. For iron deficiency, including some foods in your diet can really help.

Iron

The first step towards raising hemoglobin level in your kid’s body is to start including iron rich food in his/her diet. Lack of iron in children’s bodies can affect them badly as without enough iron, the child’s muscles, tissues and cell won’t get the oxygen they need. This condition of iron deficiency is most commonly known as anemia.

Newborns on breast feed can easily get required iron intake from mother’s milk for the first 6 months. But, after you switch infants to solid food, they might not be able to get enough iron, which can lead to iron deficiency in children. Our body doesn’t produce iron, so the only way to get iron is through food sources.  There are many causes responsible for iron deficiency in children. Premature born babies with low birth weight, children with chronic infections, overweight or obese kids are at high risk of iron deficiency. Teenage girls also suffer from this deficiency as their body loses iron during menstruation.

Symptoms of Iron Deficiency or Anemia in Children

  • Pale skin
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness and tiredness
  • Poor appetite
  • Craving for strange things like ice, dirt and paint
  • Slower growth and development
  • Behavioral issues
  • Frequent infection

If you notice these symptoms in your kid, you must consult a doctor. Iron supplements can only be taken under doctor’s supervision, as excess iron accumulation can cause other complications. The best way to consume any nutrient is to take it through food. That results in lesser chances of over consumption also. There are many iron containing foods in India which can help to overcome iron deficiency.

Recommended amount

The recommended amount of iron intake depends upon the age of the kid. When a baby is born, he/ she has iron stored in their bodies after that they get iron from mother’s milk or milk supplements. Once they start eating solids, they require more iron. As per studies the recommended amount of iron in kids is:

AgeDosage
Birth to 6 months0.27 mg (adequate)
7- 12 m11mg/ day
1-3 years7 mg/ day
4-8 years10mg/ day
9-13 years8 mg/ day
14-18 years11mg/ day (boy) 15mg/ day(girl)

What are iron foods?

Encouraging your child for a nutritious iron rich diet is the first step to prevent the problem of iron deficiency or anemia in children. Vitamin C rich food can also help, as it helps your body to absorb more iron. Cooking your food in iron cookware is a smart hack to increase iron content in the food preparations (How much iron does iron cookware add to food?)

Green vegetable

Green leafy vegetables are the best source of iron. Spinach, Kale, Fenugreek, collard greens provide approximately 2.5-5 mg of iron per cooked cup. Apart from iron, they also contain sodium and potassium in high quantities which are equally essential for the body. Some other iron rich veggies include cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, which contain 1-2 mg per cooked cup. (How to cook green veggies to not loose their nutrition?)

Dried fruits

Dried fruits are a delicious source of minerals, protein, fiber and vitamins. Raisin, prunes and apricot are good sources of iron. 100 gm of prune contains 0.93 mg of iron, while raisin contains 2.6 gm and apricot 6.3 mg. Raisins are also rich in potassium and magnesium, which helps in bone health, improves blood circulation and digestion. Apricots being high in antioxidants and vitamin A aids in visual health. Consuming these dry fruits daily is panacea for iron deficiency. (What are other foods for healthy eyesight?)

Fruits

Fruits like apple, pear and pomegranate are rich sources of iron, vitamins, protein, carbs and fiber which help regulate blood count in the body. Apart from this, fruits rich in vitamin C such as orange, lime, blueberries and grapefruit also help the body to enhance iron absorption. By including these fruits in a kid’s diet you can also help them to build up a strong immune system. (What are the best fruits teenagers?)

Legumes

Legumes are a powerhouse of nutrients. Most common types of legumes are beans, lentils, chickpeas, peas, and soybeans. They are a great source of iron which helps your child to meet their daily need of iron intake and save them from iron deficiency. Chickpeas and black eyed peas are the highest source of iron and can provide up to 6 mg per cooked cup. Legumes also contain B vitamins, folate, magnesium, potassium, fiber and zinc which means they keep you energetic throughout the day. (Why should lentils or legumes be soaked?)

Seeds

Pumpkin, sesame, hemp and flax seeds are seeds richest in iron and help your child to fight for iron deficiency. They contain iron around 1.2mg to 4.2 mg per two tablespoons. These seeds also contain a good amount of protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, antioxidants and are great sources of fatty acids too, which helps in overall kid’s growth. (What is the easiest source of selenium that is good for brain?)

What happen when you cook food in cast-iron cookware/skillet

The correct cookware helps to not only add nutrients to the food, but also preserve the nutrients. For example, clay-pots or cast iron cookware have been used for thousands of years for cooking. A study reveals that compared to modern utensils (pressure cooker), clay-pots retained 100% nutrients when cooking Dal vs. under 15% when cooked in a pressure cooker (Shocking!)

The longer food is cooked or stored in Aluminium, the greater it gets into food. Leafy vegetables, tomatoes and citrus products absorb the most aluminium (more than what we need!). Aluminium is most often considered unsafe for cooking on account of the metal reacting with food and getting absorbed in large amounts. The presence of aluminium deposits in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients has made people wary of using them

Traditional cookware

Traditional cookware- copper, iron, brass etc add the required mineral to the body and also aid in healing the body.

Cooking in copper and brass is not advisable when it comes to salty and acidic food since they react with the metal but eating in these is useful .

Cast iron cookware is great since it releases the required mineral which is critical for our body functioning (for high energy!). Many people suffer from iron deficiency, and cooking with cast iron pans can help increase your iron content by as much as 20 times!

Food cooked for longer duration and with higher moisture content absorbed most iron (almost 5 times more iron after cooking compared to raw) (know some foods for iron deficiency)

Cast iron vessels are naturally non-stick and are easy to cook. On the other hand, modern non-stick cookware releases per-fluorinated compounds into the food during cooking, especially if the food is scrapped from the bottom causing several health issues.

Cast-iron skillets are very versatile. They can be used for sautéing, pan-frying, searing, baking, braising, broiling, roasting, and even more cooking techniques. The more seasoned your cast-iron skillet is, the better flavour it’s going to give to whatever you are cooking

Cast-iron vessels need lesser oil for cooking and also keep the food warm for longer time.

BEAUTY PRO-TIP :

IF YOU USE HERBAL HENNA FOR COLORING YOUR HAIR, SOAK IT OVER-NIGHT IN AN IRON BOWL

Adding henna paste in an iron bowl get more darker colour. It forms a blackish pigment with iron and helps in covering the grey more effectively
