Milk is a poor source of iron.

In brief: Yes
It has been demonstrated that children who have chronic iron deficiency anemia can be sometimes delayed from a neurodevelopmental standpoint.
Correcting iron deficiency and the anemia that accompanies it it a very helpful thing for the long term health of a child.
