Answer:
For constipation both fluid and fibre intake has to be increased. Its good to know that she has a healthy fluid intake. For fibre , you can give dals with husk and legumes/beans daily. Do give whole cereals like dalia, brown rice, rice flakes etc. Give plenty of fruits & vegetables. Avoid refined cereals & maida products like bread, buns, biscuits etc. Please refer to this blog too for tips : https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/7-nutrition-tips-to-help-in-constipation-in-children/631 Use medication as advised by your doctor for acute situations. I hope these give you some ideas.
