Iron deficiency is the common cause of anemia in the world, and continues to be the most prevalent nutritional anemia in developing countries.The iron needs are the highest in the adolescent girls because of increased requirements for expansion of blood volume associated with growth spurts and onset of menstruation. In India, the prevalence of anemia among adolescent girls is as high as 90%.
