Iron deficiency or anemia is a condition resulting from too little iron in the body.
Young children are at higher risk of iron deficiency because of rapid growth and higher iron needs. Anemia can affect a child's ability to learn in school. A low iron level can cause decreased attention span, reduced alertness, and learning problems in children.
Because of this, we asked our BIM teachers to offer students a traditional Chinese snack, seaweed, that is rich in iron. And from these photos we can tell that the students love their green chips (even if they can be a little messy!)
