BACKGROUND Infants aged 6-24 mo are at high risk of iron deficiency. Numerous studies worldwide have sought to identify predictors of iron deficiency in this age group.

We predicted that factors related to iron status at birth (lower gestational age and lower birth weight), postnatal needs… CONTINUE READING
