Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies Giveaway

I recently was sent some Pedia-Lax® Fiber Gummies to review and to host a giveaway. Before I let my kids try something new, I like to get an idea of what the product is all about. Along with my kids I tested and reviewed the Fiber Gummies. I am all for providing my kids things that are good for their body and Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies is such a product. Each little gummy is in the shape of the cute little Penguin on the bottle. If you have a picky eater or if you are concerned about whether your child is getting their daily dose of fiber, Fiber Gummies are a great way of getting kids to get the daily recommended amount. Not only will they be getting their daily dose, they taste great too!

As parents we know that when a child is constipated, it can be an uncomfortable situation for the whole family. In fact, Pedia-Lax® Fiber Gummies, a delicious, dentist-approved, daily fiber supplement for kids ages 2-11, recently surveyed moms and found that 54% of them indicated that their child became irritable or crabby when experiencing constipation. What’s more, 72% of moms told us that they feel guilty, worried and frustrated because their child is uncomfortable thanks to constipation. No thank you, constipation!

To help support better digestive health and keep kids regular*, Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies, a recent recipient of the PTPA Seal of Approval for excellence in family products, wants to offer a few tips to help you slip more healthy, fiber-rich foods into your kids’ daily diet.


Tips to Help Resolve an “Uncomfortable” Situation and Keep Things Moving

According to experts, the leading cause of constipation is insufficient fluid intake, changes in diet, and not getting enough fiber. Since bouts of constipation can often be avoided with a few simple lifestyle and dietary changes, Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies offers four easy tips that may help make big difference:

Drink to Go: The colon acts as your body's fluid regulator. When you don’t drink enough, it will borrow water to put back into the body, causing the stools to harden. More fluids in your diet put more fluids in your bowel, lessening the chance of constipation.Boost Fiber: Fiber is essential for helping support proper gastrointestinal health, and it is especially good for children because it helps to keep them regular*. However, reports show that 90% of children don’t get enough fiber**. While healthy food options are the best way to boost fiber, let’s be real – it can be hard to make sure kids eat enough veggies and grains to get their full recommended fiber on a daily basis. Sugar-free, dentist-approved Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies are a great way to help bridge the gap between the AAP’s recommendations and the actual amount of fiber consumed by most children. The recommended serving of three gummies per day adds 6 total grams of fiber to a child's daily diet (which is equivalent to 21 spears of asparagus or ½ cup of broccoli!).

Get Moving: Exercise, along with a balanced diet, helps provide the foundation for a healthy, active lifestyle for every child. Exercise also improves digestion and speeds the passage of food through the intestines. A moving body gets the bowels moving, too.

Get on a Schedule: Encourage your child to have a bowel movement at set times during the day, mainly after breakfast. Encourage him or her to respond promptly to the urge to go. It’s important for kids to realize they should go when they have to go, versus hold it in.

Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies are available in CVS, Walmart and Target stores and supermarkets and retailers nationwide as well as online, for the suggested retail price of $7.99 for a bottle of 60 gummies.
