Treatment of Chronic Constipation in Children
Remember, children need to try things ten or more times before they like them.
Some fruits seem to help with constipation more than others. Dried fruits, such as prunes, raisins, and apricots will help. Fresh or canned fruits that help with constipation include pears, peaches, plums, prunes, apricots, and oranges.
Avoid bananas, as they can make constipation worse.
