Should I be concerned about my child getting too much iron?


The recommended daily intake for children 4–9 years old is 10 mg. The 5 mg found in two a2z Chewable tablets is safe for children to take. Depending on iron intake from the diet, this amount will help insure the child gets what is needed. The additional 5 mg will not contribute any negative effects due to iron. The upper limit for iron is 40 mg/day for children and the body has a mechanism to turn off iron absorption once the body’s stores are full. The product has a child safety cap and should be kept out of reach of children so a child will not consume too many tablets at once.
