Constipation in kids is a state of health caused by a host of factors such as lack of fiber intake in their diet, lack of adequate water intake or may be associated with an illness. It is important to identify the symptoms associated with constipation, in order to address it at an early stage.

Constipation may be treated effectively at home. Here are some useful home remedies to choose from:

Encourage your child to drink more water and do simple exercises such as running or skipping. This would help to adequately hydrate their body.

Raisins helps to regulate the bowel movement. Soak a couple of raisins in hot water for about 2-3 hours. Crush them and give to your child 4-5 times a day.

Include around 3-4 servings of high-fiber foods such as sweet potatoes, beans, broccoli, spinach etc to the childís diet. At least 2 servings of fruits such as plums, peaches, apricots would also help in the bowel movements.

If the kids still feel uncomfortable, it is advisable to consult a medical practitioner.
