Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies: Review and Giveaway

As a parent of two young children, I am well aware of the difficulties of getting children to get proper intake of fiber. Even though my children love their fruits and vegetables, my oldest still deals with constipation on a regular basis. 


As a former preemie, she had a lot of difficulties with milk products as an infant and this resulted with her being on Soy formulas and other Soy based products. This in turn caused constipation. That issue had seemed to have resolved itself by the time she was two. However, she still has very solid bowel movements, despite eating a very balanced diet, and getting enough fluids during her day. 




Recently I discovered a product  that has made a world of difference for my daughter. Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies are a great product to help keep your children regular in a fun and great tasting way!

My Review:

These little gummies have made a world of a difference in my daughter's digestive system issues. The issue with my daughter's bowel movements is not so much the regularity of them, but the solidness of them. Despite a healthy diet and fluid intake, she would still have very solid poops. I am now happy to report that the "poop problem" in our home has improved dramatically. I am very impressed with this product. I give them to my daughter as per label directions, 1 gummie three times per day. We coordinate it with meals, so "M" always asks for her medicine. She even told me the other day, "mommy, my poops don't hurt" (is that too much info!)

I had no idea that children her age need the amount of fiber they do. Children ages 2 and 3 need 19g of fiber A DAY, while children 4-11 require 25 grams! I was astonished it was that high. Wow! I really thought that I was giving my children enough fiber in their foods, but clearly I was mistaken. However, Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies have helped us out in this department. By having the recommended three gummies, your child will have taken in 6 grams of fiber. A great start to their daily requirements.

I love this fun way to get your child to get the fiber they need, and that they are sugar free and dentist approved. I am not one to give my children candy regularly, but I feel very comfortable giving this product to my three and a half year old. I have not tried these with my two year old yet, but hope to in the future! 


I am also excited to tell you that Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies has been awarded the PTPA Media Inc's Seal of Approval of excellence in family products and that is very encouraging to me as a parent! If other parents approve of a product designed for children, I am much more prone to approve too. Which I definitely do with these!

I highly recommend this product and give it a huge thumbs up!
