Hi Malvika, my son faces the same issue. There could be a few reasons for this - 1. they don't drink enough water. 2. They are not eating enough fibre rich food. 3. They have a tendency to be constipated. I feed my son fibre rich food and monitor his water intake, but i also realized that at such a tender age, they will need medical help. Allopathy doesn't have a great answer for kids this age, so i turned to homeopathy, and we go to a very trusted homeopathic doctor. My son takes his medication, and is not having an issue anymore. However, because we would like his constipation to be removed from the root, we are working with the homeopathic doctor to reduce his medication every month. The key is diet and water here though, so if your son dislikes vegetables (like mine does), you will need to find ways to get him to eat a balanced diet anyway. All the best!

Hi Malvika! I agree with Haritha. It is due to lack of fiber content as well as water that a child gets constipated. It is actually a vicicious cycle. If ur child has loss of appetite , he will not eat and thereby no bowel movement. And also no bowel movement means no desire to eat. So u need to break this cycle. Give less of filling food like milk etc and more of fibrous food such as whole wheat flour, dalia, brown rice, vegetables like beans, peas, etc, salad like cucumber, carrots, radish etc, fruits like papaya, watermelon, banana, grapes, apple. Please avoid giving juices, sifted or puréed food items, dishes made of refined flour as they further worsen constipation. U cud consult ur doc n give stool softeners such as lactulose based medicines n creams to apply so that child does not feel pain etc. n try breaking this cycle. N once ur child's bowel movement cycle gets regularized he will definitely feel the urge to have food. Hope this works.
