Yes: There are several nutritional deficiencies that can cause fatigue and lethargy in your child. Iron deficiency can cause anemia, which can lead to paleness, tiredness, and difficulty keeping up with the other kids. Certain vitamin deficiencies can also cause fatigue. It is important for your child to have a balanced diet to prevent these nutritional deficiencies.
