What food should my 3 year old daughter eat to harden her stool? We are not always giving her veggies. She has had loose stool for a very long time.

In brief: Apples/bananas

I find apples (as sauce or wedges) and bananas have a stool firming effect.
Apple juice and other fruit juices will loosen the stool.

In brief: 3 yr old diet

Its very important to avoid sugary substances (juice, soda drinks).
I would add more veggies and fruits (guava is really good to help firm up the stool). Snacks high in fiber.
