@rno It was not against milk, but you don't need to use fortified food if you eat broccoli etc.

Fortified = more expensive

Maybe than it it is better to take the broccoli, quinoa, pumpkin seeds, strawberries and kiwi without the milk.
Reminder - this is the vegetarian section.Not sure if that was made against milk or just fortification?

Bitter Orange Rno I see your point and I'm trying to eat vegetables etc but sometimes I'm busy or my fridge is empty or I'm just insecure. Maybe as I learn more recipes and more about nutrition in general I'll cut the milk too.

Aliakai, that's a very informative link, thank you very much!

I was grocery shopping yesterday and I saw some fortified milks in the fridge, supposedly for kids. They have lots of vitamins and minerals.

But they also contain calcium which is supposed to inhibit the absorption of the iron. But also vitamin C which does the opposite. I'm confused.

Does anybody have any experience with those things?

Thanks!
There is a study that looks at this, and it appears that the amount of time the Ca inhibits Fe absorption is limited, and that a rebound effect occurs within 4 hours of the intake of each. In other words, our bodies have adapted even when both are present, so if the calcium and iron are taken together, you should still absorb a good chunk of both. Now, if there isn't vitamin A and/or D present in the meal (beta carotene from carrots or sweet potatoes works fine here) you may have a harder time with the calcium, but the iron should be fine.
