Wheat germ for one year old

Since my son gets constipated we have been adding wheat germ for the fiber in his food. Is too much bad? Anyone else use wheat germ?

  • Yes, too much is bad, it can make them prone to wheat allergies, check with your doctor, make sure he is drinking enough water, and focus on fresh fruits and veggies.

  • It will NOT make him prone to wheat allergies. Where do you people come up with this stuff? I would definitely talk to his dr and maybe just do it once a day in the mean time.
