Background: Previous studies on the cognitive effects of iron treatment have focused on anemic or nonanemic iron-deficient infants. The effect of iron supplementation on cognitive development among iron-sufficient infants has not been studied. The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of iron supplementation on performance in the Bayley Scales of Infant Development (BSID) and anthropometric measurement in 6-month-old iron-sufficient healthy infants.
