  • my daughter has a real bad problem and so I make sure there is plenty of fiber foods around the the fiberone brands of food anything with a high fiber content, like double fiber bread. I make things with Benefiber added to it like brownies and her meals I will add her food to a plate then mix the Benefiber into it. Also alot of water and stay away from apple juice, grape juice is good and also mix the Benfiber into any type of juice...the stuff is tasteless and does work! Stool softeners are good but use them sparingly

  • I notice when I don't drink enough I get constipated. Drink more use fiber supplements if you get the ones that go in water or a beverage they have no taste. Eat more beans, apricots and prunes.
