children 1 - 3 years: 7 mg daily
children 4 - 8 years: 10 mg daily
children 9 - 13 years: 8 mg daily
male children 14 - 18 years: 11 mg daily
female children 14 - 18 years: 15 mg daily

I recommend that your mom talk with your doctor to ensure that if you need iron, that you are receiving the right amount. ...Read more

And the beta carotene/carotenoid form, mostly from diet, is best. Target 4000-5000 IU total, 3500 in your supplement. Avoid the retinol form of vitamin A in your supplement. ...Read more
