Key Messages
  • Starting from the age of six months, a child should receive iron supplement (iron-folic acid syrup/tablet) for 100 days in a year to help prevent anaemia. Contact your health service provider at the nearest PHC, Sub-center, AWC or government health facility for details about iron supplementation and de-worming.

  • Include iron rich foods in your child's diet - the best sources of iron are animal foods, such as liver, lean meats and fish or green leafy vegetables, iron-fortified foods. Do not give the child tea along with meals.

  • When your child is one year old and upto 5 years, s/he should receive de-worming medicine every six months. Also following good hygiene practices prevents worms. Do not allow your children to play near the latrine. Wash their (and your) hands with soap and water, especially after defecating and before cooking, feeding and eating. Ensure that children wear shoes/slippers to prevent worm infestations.
