Fibre Contents of Food Chart
A high fibre and fluid diet is a healthy diet and is suitable for all the family. However, if constipation is a result of Colitis or Crohn’s disease, increasing fibre intake could have a detrimental effect, so it’s best to discuss this with your GP first.
You should encourage a regular meal pattern and increase the whole family’s fibre and fluid intake at every meal. By doing this you will increase the water content of stools making them softer and easier to pass.
