Kids ‘n Fiber

Like adults, youngsters need dietary fiber. By helping our digestive system work effectively, fiber plays an important role in maintaining good health. Great natural sources of fiber include:


• Beans, like navy, pinto, kidney, and black or white

• Peas, like split peas, chickpeas, and black-eyed peas

• Fruit, like pears, raspberries and prunes

• Vegetables, like spinach, carrots, and broccoli

• Whole grain cereal, whole grain bread, and whole grain pasta
