To avoid constipation both fluid and fiber intake has to be increased. For that Give more water. If the child doesn’t take plain water include fluids like coconut water, , juices, soups etc. Give dals with husk in khichri form or add whole dals/beans/legumes to the soups. Give porridge of dalia, oats, ragi, rice flakes. Alternatively these whole cereals can be used for khichri, uttapam, upma or idlis too. Give plenty of fruits & vegetables. Hard fruits like apple, pear can be given as stew. Fruits like banana, papaya, cheeku be given as it is or in a mashed form. Avoid giving refined cereals/ maida products.
