Constipation is a common
problem in which a child may have fewer bowel movements (BMs or poops) than usual.
It usually isn't a cause for too much concern.
Constipation can often get better with the three Fs: fluids, fiber, and fitness.
Skip fatty, sugary, or starchy foods, which can slow the bowels down. Choose fiber-rich
