The food that we eat and drink is the fuel which powers our bodies. When your body has taken all the stuff it needs out of the food, the rest goes down into the large bowel and collects in the rectum. potty-training.jpg
Constipation is very common in children and it is usually caused by not drinking enough fluids, not eating enough fiber, or having a diet high in constipating foods like cheese.Children with constipation usually either have very large hard stools or hard, pellet-like stools. Bowel movements are also infrequent and painful.

Children often develop constipation as a result of stool withholding. They may withhold stool because they are stressed about potty training, are embarrassed to use a public bathroom, do not want to interrupt playtime, or are fearful of having a painful or unpleasant bowel movement.

home treatment

Apple juice and Prune juice are best remedies. Apple juice contains pectin, which naturally cleans out the digestive tract.Even adults use it for weight loss through cleansing.

fiber rich balanced diet with whole grains and greens and drinking more water can reduce constipation.

regular toilet time -- If your child is toilet trained, encourage him or her to sit on the toilet for 5 to 10 minutes once or twice a day.
