The authors would like to correct an error in their recently published paper [1]. The prevalence of inadequacy for iron for older infants (6–12 months) should be 75%, not 92%, as reported in the paper. The software [2] used to calculate the prevalence of inadequacy requires the user to enter the percentage bioavailability of iron. The Estimated Average Requirement (EAR) for iron in older infants is 7 mg/d and is based on 10% iron bioavailability [3]. When we entered 10% bioavailability, the software set the EAR at 12.6 mg/d, not 7 mg/d; thus, the prevalence of inadequacy was overestimated.
