So your kid is a little backed up. What to do? Well, food sources with dietary fibre can help a lot with constipation. Think of it as a tag-team solution: soluble and insoluble fibre work together to help get things moving. The soluble kind helps soften stools, and the insoluble kind helps keep your kid regular.
Fruit, vegetables and whole grains are all great sources of both kinds of dietary fibre and they can all be found in the yummy snack recipes below.
Just remember to make sure your little one increases her fluid intake at the same time as her fibre intake to prevent gas, bloating and diarrhea.
