Constipation is a problem that almost every person faces throughout life, making “pain victims” both among adults and children. Sedentary life, disorganized nutrition, stress and slow digestion are just some of the causes that can lead to this discomfort. But when it happens to your kid, and he starts crying that his belly hurts, you can actually feel his pain and want to do the impossible possible to help him get rid of this discomfort.
As pills aren’t such a great help, natural remedies will come and save your little angel’s life.
Olive oil is one of the best natural remedies for constipation. It stimulates digestion, favoring the elimination of any “waste” in the digestive tract and preventing long-term constipation.
– 1 tablespoon of olive oil
– 1 teaspoon of lemon juice (optional)
There is no need to add lemon juice, especially if your kid doesn’t mind swallowing as such. Mine does, so I always add lemon juice.
All that you have to do is to give 1 teaspoon of olive oil to your child, in the morning on an empty stomach. But you can also give it any time of the day if he struggles with belly pains.
