Last week I shared with you my top 20 fruits and vegetables that have high amounts of water and help our children poop. This week I thought about sharing my top 15 foods rich in fiber and that fulfill the same goal: help our children get to number 2.

Top 15 foods rich in fiber

1. Navy beans

2. Raspberries

3. Collard greens

4. Turnip greens

5. Beet greens

6. Cinnamon

7. Dried peas

8. Lentils

9. Beans (pinto, black, Lima, kidney)

10. Green peas

11. Winter squash

12. Pear

13. Broccoli

14. Cranberries

15. Spinach

As you can see, greens, beans, peas, and lentils are in top 10 of foods rich in fiber. Surprisingly, cinnamon is also rich in fiber. Mix it in your child’s oatmeal or yogurt (if there are no dairy issues) and you have a delicious breakfast.

Are you feeling frustrated and overwhelmed? Did you try many, many methods to help your child poop regularly, but none seem to work? We can talk about the many ways to get rid of constipation and together we can come up with a personalized plan that will help your child go to the bathroom regularly in no time. Your child’s health is important to both you and I and we can work together to help them stay healthy and happy. It is easier than you think and we can do this together.

What do you think about these foods rich in fiber? Does your child like any of them?
