The opinion of your hematologist
Iron is an essential trace element for the human body and is particularly important for the development of babies. One of the main tasks of iron is the production of hemoglobin – the component of red blood cells that is responsible for the transport of oxygen in the body. Every cell in the body, no matter how small, needs oxygen to live, which is why hemoglobin and the iron needed to make it are so important. The amount of iron each person needs depends on their age and body size, meaning that children need different amounts of iron at different stages of their development.
