Do bananas cause constipation?

They can: I often use bananas as a natural therapy in infants to firm up their runny poo. Along with pasta, apples, bread & some cheeses, these foods tend to slow the stool as it moves thru the intestines.The effect tends to be volume related, so a little may not constipate while a lot may.
