give two bananas daily.... if ur child eats only one banana then give two half bananas... in cold weather give elaichi bananas... proven solution of regular constipation... but yes chronic problem may need medicines... also give green Dal.. soak and grind and make into cheela... or any other way.. give all veggie soup... pressure cooker beetroot carrot tomato potato cucumber/bottle gourd beans spinach coriander etc and grind... add butter salt Nd black salt... lemon juice and give.. do not. strain .

@ Divya , Whatever you are giving to the little one is perfect. Another thing is you can give fruits to your child in the presence of sunshine during cold. And you can also give sweet lemon water any time in cold, that gives immunity to the child against cold . do you know dal chini stick? Cardamom and Sauf. till the time she has cold you can use dal chini stick . while boiling Milk put very small piece of it and peeple stick for 4-5 days only. do it. I do it for my daughter during bad bad cold and it really works. Use cardamom and sauf in dishes accordingly. Both are good in constipation.

thank you shika, by baby diet is idly or chapathi for breakfast. rice with too dal or moong dal and curd rice and she prefers some vegetable s like cauliflower, carrot, potato this is for lunch . for snacks oats porridge or cornflakes or wheat rawa upma or homemade cerelac .for dinner soft rice with dal. she drinks 400ml milk per day and she eat fruits in between but not everyday because she is suffering from cold caught regularly so I can't give fruits daily. she drinks 700 to 900mp water per day.

Hi Divya, if she is still facing the same problem. Could you Plz tell me her diet chart? Another thing don't give milk more than 4 times. Give her "Himalayas Bonisan drops ". It is really good. This is my personal experience with Bonisan drops. Really satisfactory. And safe you can try for long. Side by side take care of water content.

One of my friends son had constipation which caused anal fissures thus leading to stomach infection. For children, constipation can be dangerous if not taken care of.

@ abhishek , yes, they support to guava in constipation. But as per the food science and Nutrition studies it is difficult to digest. And I have personally experienced that it creates trouble.

Thanks a lot Shikha for the information. Just a quick question - you mentioned Guava is difficult to digest hence should be avoided. But I heard completely opposite of what you suggested. My parents/grandparents have always forced us to eat as much as Guava as possible especially when we are constipated. There theory may be completely wrong. Any thoughts?
