Start With the Basics: Water!
Water requirements are different for kids at different ages - ask your doctor how much water is the right daily intake for your child.
Fiber? Yes or No?
Insoluble fiber, on the other hand, adds is bulk to stool. If your child is drinking plenty of water, this may help them pass their stool more quickly - but if getting them to drink water is a struggle and they tend toward dehydration, the added bulk to their stool may actually make constipation worse.
Identify Food Allergies
Even though giving up a favorite food can be a tough adjustment for a lot of kids, many kids are willing to make changes once they see a real payoff - no more stomach aches or pain when they have to go.
Herbs and Supplements
In addition, supplements for kids with constipation should be given following an individualized plan, tailored to meet your child's specific needs and taking into account everything else that's going on with their health.
Any time you’re using herbs or supplements with kids, you should always do so under the care of your ND or other holistic health practitioner!
