Guidelines for the prevention of nutritional anemia include the following:

to prevent anemia. Exceptions include women of childbearing age who are well advised to take supplemental iron and folic acid, and preterm infants who are often prescribed iron supplements. Ask your doctor if you should take these supplements.
