Healthy toddlers (age 9-18 month) following a routine blood count will be placed in three groups:
- Iron deficiency with no anemia
- no anemia and no iron deficiency Following a nutritional questionnaire, parents of all toddlers will receive instruction regarding appropriate nutrition in the 2nd year of life. Groups 1 and 2 will randomly receive one of two preparations currently in use for treatment of iron deficiency in Israel (Aktiron 35 - Ferrous gluconate and Ferripel-3 - iron polysaccharide complex). Followup blood count will be taken 3 month after recruitment. The study aims to compare the effectiveness of the Iron preparations regarding compliance and efficacy.
The hypothesis is that a significant difference will be detected between the two preparations.
