IRON DEFICIENCY REMAINS AN ONGOING ISSUE FOR MANY NEW ZEALANDERS, WITH MANY UNAWARE THEY HAVE DEFICIENT LEVELS.

According to the last national nutrition surveys, low iron levels were evident in one in 14 adult women over 15 years old with over a third of teenage girls aged 15-18 years not achieving their daily iron requirements.
 
Furthermore, 8 out of 10 toddlers are not meeting the recommended daily intake of dietary iron and 14% of children under 2 are deficient.
 
In recognition of these concerning statistics, Beef + Lamb New Zealand is pleased to facilitate a World Iron Awareness Week commencing Monday 1st May 2017, with an aim to raise awareness on the importance of dietary iron, recognising the signs of low iron and what you can do about it.
