Remedy for constipation: child laxatives

I've never had to give my children a laxative. If they complain their tummy hurts or they are constipated (our older kids know what it is), then I've told them to eat more fruit and veggies and to drink more water. That's usually all it takes for our children. Again it all comes back to diet. A well balanced diet should make a person regular. Exercise is another way to get the bowels moving, naturally.
