It would be nice to encourage a healthy meal routine rather than rely on medication. I have been told diluted prune juice and apples help, but it’s still an issue.

  • THe ones that cause diarrhoea. Juice. Also gives lots of tummy massages. If a baby then wiggle their legs in circles to get things moving. A more balanced diet.

  • Pears are also good for movement. Maybe stew some and have them on breakfast cereals or for dessert.

  • Fruit and fibre but also make sure they’re drinking a lot of water. I’ve been told constipation is very common with toddlers – they tend to be very busy and may forget to drink water.

  • definatly more fruit and give him more fibre to move it all along.

  • Wholemeal high fibre bread only,pears are also a good source of fibre.

  • thanks

  • Prunes are excellent indeed. You could try with dried ones. And give the kiwis a go. A lot of people relieve constipation eating one first thing in the morning.

  • Perhaps try to avoid foods that can block up like white bread or bananas. My friend had a similar problem with her 2 yr old and she has begun to give her son a scoop of beneful in his bottle each day and that seems to have helped.
