My older kids were tested at 2 and 4 and that was only because they were very thin, occasionally lethargic and picky eaters. There was nothing wrong with their iron levels.
I gave iron supplements to my first for a month(he was 9 months old, the recommended age to start)but the supplement was expensive, increased ds's digestive problems and was a horror to get him to take. Maybe they have something different now but then it was a black syrup that smelled like a tractor. It really smelled like a tractor!
