How do I know if my child has chronic constipation?
Chronic constipation is often one of the most common problems during childhood. A constipated child may have infrequent bowel movements or dry, hard stools, which are usually caused by changes in diet or the early stages of toilet training (when some children become nervous or frightened to go to the toilet). If left untreated, chronic constipation can cause distress to the child and family, and result in severe emotional disturbances and family discord.
Why are prebiotics useful for the treatment of chronic constipation?
Prebiotics, such as Nutrigen Childrens Inulin Powder Drink, are a safe, easy and effective way to improve bowel function by positively influencing intestinal biota. As soluble Food fibres, prebiotics do this by stimulating the colon's good bacteria to grow.
