- Eat foods with iron. The lack of iron is the main cause by which anemia affects our body, which is why its consumption will be important. Among the foods that we can find this element are: blood, liver, red meat and dark fish, but also in some vegetables such as lentils, chickpeas and beans.
- Incorporate in your citrus foods. Vitamin C is important because it facilitates the absorption of iron. We find it in fruits such as oranges, strawberries, aguaymanto, camu camu, among others.
- Incorporate physical activity into your routine. If your child exercises, they are on the right track. Exercise promotes growth and development and also allows us to identify if you have fatigue, a key sign in this disease. If you are a person at rest, it will be ideal to encourage your development, with an hour of exercise a day.
- Take him to his well-child checkup. Not all children will present symptoms like those described above, carrying out a hemoglobin control will help you detect anemia in a timely manner. Always go to the nearest health center so that your care is supervised by specialists.
