In recent studies the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) significantly increased the recommended daily fiber intake standards, and recommend 25 grams of fiber per day for four-year-old children. Wow, that’s a lot of fiber to get into one child!
Little Miss A will eat whole wheat bread, the occasional broccoli, raw spinach leaves,(I know she likes it and I can’t believe it) and of course her favorite fruits, but still, trying to make sure she gets all the fiber she needs does worry me.
We had the opportunity to try out Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies. They’re made by Fleet and for any of you that know the name know they’re pretty synonymous with being a good bowel cleaner (to put it nicely.)
Being a mom I want to make sure my children get their fiber not only to be healthy but also because I know that personally it helps them to be able to go #2 a lot easier. I’m sure most parents don’t want their children struggling at potty time either.We loved the penguin shapes and lots of fun colors in Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies but did notice they were a good bit bigger than Miss A’s normal gummy vitamins. A loved the taste of the gummies but with taking her daily multi-vitamin I think it was a little much. Often times I have to persuade A to take her multi-vitamin alone much less other vitamins.
I would definitely recommend these, especially for the kids who won’t eat veggies and whole grains! Check out Pedia-Lax and become a fan: http://www.facebook.com/fibergummies
