Is it possible to give my child too much fiber?
While there is no way to quantify “too much” fiber, any sudden changes in diet can cause discomfort. To avoid this situation, we advise parents to gradually build their child’s fiber intake and increase the amount of water they drink daily.

What is the ingredient Xylitol in Fiber Gummies?

What are Fiber Gummies sweetened with?

How much fiber does my child need daily?
The American Academy of Pediatrics advises that parents use the following guidelines to determine the amount of fiber needed†:
|9–11 years (female)||26|
|9–11 years (male)||31|
†Adapted from: Kleinman RE, editor. Pediatric Nutrition Handbook, 6th ed. Elk Grove Village (IL): American Academy of Pediatrics; 2009
What is the source of fiber and how does it work?
The source of fiber is polydextrose, a soluble type of fiber. Dietary fibers are indigestible and therefore move though the digestive system to the intestine. While in the intestine, fiber plays a role in helping to improve bowel function.* Fiber helps relieve constipation* by absorbing water, which makes stool softer and more comfortable to eliminate. Fiber helps improve gastrointestinal health* by helping to maintain a healthy level of bacteria that already exist in the intestine.
What is the difference between soluble and insoluble fiber?
Both soluble and insoluble fibers are undigested. They are therefore not absorbed into the bloodstream. Instead of being used for energy, fiber is excreted from our bodies. Soluble fiber forms a gel when mixed with liquid, while insoluble fiber does not. Both pass through intestines largely intact.
Are Fiber Gummies safe for all ages?
Like the other oral products, Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies are designed for children 2-11. The gummy form may pose a choking hazard to children under 2. There are no safety concerns with teens or adults taking the product.
Is the gelatin used in Fiber Gummies animal-based or vegetable-based?
The gelatin in Fiber Gummies is animal-based.
My son has had issues with hard bowels since he was about 18 months, I was told to try mineral oil and that was just a mess - he didn't like it and it stained his clothes. I tried giving him prunes by hiding them in other food, but that didn't work. Then I ran across the fiber gummies. It was so sad to see him in tears trying to go and not being able to help him. The gummies worked great, he looked forward to eating them and he had no trouble going. It did take a little while to get the dose right because it recommends 3 per day but he didn't need that much. I would give him about 2 every other day and that seem to do the trick. I highly recommend them above all other items and home remedies. — Ann
My 2-year-old daughter has had problems with constipation since about 6 months. She would have to take Miralax daily or her stool would be so large that she could not pass it. She would scream and cry every time she had to poop. She has been off Miralax and on Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies for the past month...the only thing that I changed was stopping Miralax and adding the gummies. She is pooping every day now and not crying. This product really works if you’re dealing with a child who has chronic constipation and bulky stools. — Tammy
My 5-year-old daughter has struggled with bowel movements for about 18 months now (constipation, lack of control, etc.). We’ve tried everything that our pediatrician recommended from Miralax to Mineral Oil, only leaving us with big messes to clean up and her feeling unsuccessful. Finally I took matters into my own hands after reading testimonials on your website and tried the Fiber Gummies. I was really taking a chance on this as my daughter is also an incredibly picky eater (hence the need for some supplemental fiber!), and I wasn’t sure if I could even get her to try one. She loves them! She even reminds us at mealtimes to get her a gummy! She has had much more control of her bowel movements and I truly believe this product saved us from more terrible treatments that don’t work. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! — Sara
I am so impressed with your Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies. My 4-year-old son has suffered from frequent and painful constipation since he was just months old. About 6 weeks or so ago, I happened upon your Fiber Gummies while shopping for other gummy vitamins. The Fiber Gummies have been wonderful! He loves the taste and reminds me to take them each day. He has been going regularly and pain free and he is so happy. This is the first time that he is able to eat cheese without having the terrible after affects (constipation). Thank you for a fabulous product! — Robyn
My daughter, now 7, loves the Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies and so do I. She has had constipation problems since birth. She required special formula, she was prescribed MIRAlax before it was available over the counter and drank mineral oil to help her constipation. While she has come a long way since she was a toddler with severe constipation, she still struggles and this product really helps. She has become more regular and we do not miss a day without taking your supplement. I even put one in her lunch box to take while she is at school and if I should forget to give her one, she asks for it! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! — Darlene
My child was having the hardest time going potty. We took her to the doctor and even changed her diet, nothing seemed to work! I stumbled on these Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies and thought, “hey it can’t hurt to try.” Within two days she was using the potty without screaming and was going every day. We still give her a couple a day and everything has been smooth sailing. Thank you Pedia-Lax for making something that worked for my child. — Salena
My 6 year old has had trouble pooping since he was a baby. He would go a week at a time without pooping. I tried everything on the market. Well it got to the point of where he would cry all the time, because when he would finally go it would take about an hour. The poop was just too hard. I found Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies while trying to find something to relieve him. Let me just say these tasty treats are amazing. He has no trouble now and he is much happier. This is the best thing anyone could have come up with. Just want to thank you from the both us! — Terra
My daughter never had an issue with her bowel movements until age 5. I was advised by her doctor to use Miralax. Unfortunately, three days after using the Miralax, we had the same problem. I knew she needed relief quickly. I purchased Pedia-Lax Liquid Glycerin Suppositories. Just like it states on the box, it was fast, safe and gentle. My daughter was like a new kid immediately. To keep her on the right track, I will be buying the Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies. Just printed out the coupon! Your testimonials from real Moms and Dads is what convinced me to try Pedia-Lax. It was nice to know that you’re not alone. — Kathleen
My son is 5 and has had a problem with constipation since he was 1. He has been on Miralax for 4 years. He had to have it every day or he would stop going. We have tried every product out there and that was the only thing that worked. At his 5 year check-up, his doctor gave me samples of the Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies. Now, he is completely off the Miralax with 3 gummies a day. He loves the gummies and thinks he is getting something special every time he gets one. His sister is starting to have the same problem and I was about to start her on Miralax, but the gummies work for her too. Thank you Pedia-Lax for such a great product that my kids love and I don’t feel guilty giving!! — Melissa
I don’t know if it was perfect timing, or something just “clicked” in her head...but I purchased the Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies to help my 2 1/2 yr old go to the potty. I noticed a difference within a week! Now, she gets three gummies a day and she will either go the potty every other day or every day. I have told ALL my girlfriends that are Mommies about these! I am so grateful for this product. I Love them!! Thank you so much!!! — Beth
Until I found Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies it was a struggle for my daughter to poop. She would sit on the toilet for an hour with no relief, but a lot of tears. It really hurt me and my husband to see her that way. One day I saw an ad in a magazine for the Fiber Gummies and decided to give them a try. Since then, we haven’t had one sad day on the toilet. I don’t know what we would have done without them. Thank you for making one more thing easier! — Gabriel
Thank you Pedia-Lax for coming up with Fiber Gummies! I don’t know what my 7 year old would do without them :D She has had bowel problems since potty training and these help like no other! — Christine
