What's Fiber?


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 some fiber every day. Foods that are naturally high in fiber include:

  • whole grains, such as 100% whole-wheat bread, brown rice, and oatmeal
  • cooked dried beans, such as black beans, lentils, and split peas
  • fruit and vegetables
  • nuts and seeds

For healthy, fiber-full snack options, try:

  • air-popped popcorn
  • yogurt, cereal, or oatmeal topped with fruit and nuts
