Treatment of Chronic Constipation in Children

Many children (and adults, too) do not get enough vegetables.

Fresh vegetables are great. Try not to overcook them. Salads are good, too. It is fine to use salad dressing if that helps your children eat more vegetables.

Remember to never serve raw vegetables to children under age three, as they can cause choking.

Along with diet, regular toilet habits are important, too.
