Word! Fiber

Word! Fiber

Fiber

(En español: Fibra)

Say: fy-bur

Foods with fiber are really good for you and your bowels! Fiber is found in plants and can't be digested so it helps clean out your intestines by moving bowel movements (also called poop) along. It's important to eat fiber so try some bran muffins instead of chocolate. Another way to get fiber is to eat more brown rice, fruit, and oatmeal. Fiber can be good for you and yummy, too!
