In brief: Add some benefiber

This is one of my favorite otc fibers for kids.
..It has no odor, taste, or coloring...It can be added to cooking, sprinkled on foods, put in juice/milk and your child won't even know it. It is a natural fiber that is known to be healthy/benefitial in the long-term use. Cut down of the juices, increase water may help. If not helpful, consult doc..Good luck.
