School is back in full swing. Hopefully, you and your kids are getting adjusted to your new schedules. We’re still struggling with getting up early for school, especially me! I’m not a morning person and I want to sleep through the alarm every single day.

According to a recent survey conducted by Pedia-Lax®, bathroom anxiety is a common concern among school-aged kids. Nearly 40% always or often choose to “hold it in” rather than use the school bathroom. Often, this behavior can result in acute constipation and that’s not good!

I’m sharing with you three ways to help your child from relief from constipation if they’re one of the kid’s who hold it in or just suffer from constipation once in a while.

Eat Fruits and Vegetables that are High in Fiber

Encourage your child to eat raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, apricots, apples, corn, broccoli, or spinach. These high fiber fruits and vegetables can help your child with constipation.

Help Your  Child Stay Hydrated

Did you know that when you’re thirsty you’re already dehydrated? To avoid dehydration in your child offer them water six times a day, even if your child isn’t thirsty.
