Does having dairy products affect iron absorption?
Q: My three-year-old grandchild consumes a lot of dairy products. Will this affect his iron absorption?
A:Dairy products will not reduce the iron absorption, but his diet should include other foodstuffs like veggies, whole grains, pulses, sprouts, fruits, etc., in order to give him complete nutrition. He is in his growing stage, so you need to concentrate on his diet, so that he gets proper nutrition. Do not give him only 1-2 food group. Include all the food groups for proper and healthy growth.
