I thought bananas were supposed to stop you up...but it seems like whenever my son eats them he poops like a champ...he doesn't get sick or fussy so its not an allergy. what's up with that?

  • I have always heard that they help with your bowels ( not stop you up ) .... maybe it has to do witht he potassium ?

  • Oh, that explains a lot. my grandmother was the one that told me if i ate too many i'd get constipated. then again my grandmother once added ketchup to spaghetti because she ran out of i'm not sure why i'd listen to her on anything kitchen related, lol.

  • My Mom told me that they constipate you but I read that they actually are excellent to help in digestion. My Son "poops like a champ" too when he eats them so they help him go. He loves bananas too!
