Constipation

Say: kon-stuh-pay-shun

Sometimes your bowel movements – you know, the stuff inside your intestines we call poop – might be hard and dry. Yeah, it's kind of gross, but it can also be bad for you if this happens too much. One way to fight constipation is to eat more fiber (found in fruits and vegetables and other stuff), and drink more water and juice. Tell your parent if your bowel movements are hard and dry, difficult to push out, or if you don't have bowel movements very often. Your parent can take you to a doctor who can help you.
