Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies Review and Giveaway {CLOSED}

My kids aren’t very regular.  Getting them to eat things that have a good source of fiber is a nightmare.  I was given the opportunity to work with Pedia-Lax on a review and was thrilled to get the opportunity to try their Fiber Gummies in our home.  Our 4 year old son and our 9 year old daughter has used them and they both really like them.  They have been proven to work after my kids have used them!  Why is fiber important?  It helps kids stay regular.  I know I have irregularity problems and I know how uncomfortable that can be myself.  Neither one of our older kids aren’t very regular themselves and there have been times that our daughter has even complained about it.
Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies are in the shape of penquins.  They are for ages 2 years to 11 years and they recommended amount of gummies to take is 3 times daily (not all 3 at once).  Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies were introduced in 2009 by Fleet.  These are a daily fiber suppliment made just for kids.  My kids definately won’t eat brown bread or broccoli and these Fiber Gummies take care of that problem.  Three of these gummies are equal to a half cup of broccoli!  The recommended amount of fiber by the American Academy of pediatrics for a 4 year old is 25 grams of fiber while an 11 year old should have 31 grams which can be hard to include in your child’s diet.  I know neither of my kids are eating enough veggies or other foods that are a great source of fiber.  Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies are also dentist approved!

Just knowing that each gummie has 1.5 grams of fiber and 3 of them are equal to a half cup of broccoli, my 4 year old would have to eat a lot of broccoli to reach the amount that is recommended.  Of course there are other foods that are a good source of fiber.  The Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies aren’t meant to be a replacement for fiber.  It’s a suppliment that is meant to give your kids a fiber boost.  I was sent some information from a registered dietitian – Liz Weiss, the author of “The Moms’ Guide to Meal Makeovers”.  Below are some tips on how to get fiber into your child’s diet:

For starters, buy fresh foods and keep it in reach of your children so that they may make healthier snack choices.  As parents, we control the kinds of foods that are brought into the house.  Don’t peel the skin from apples or potatoes as the skins are rich in fiber.  Another great tip is that if your kids like french fries, try making them sweet potato fries and bake them.  You can get them to snack on dried fruits and you can also spread peanut butter on sliced fruit.

My kids love apple slices with peanut butter!  You can still let them eat homemade cookies and cakes too by using whole wheat flour and instead of butter, use canola oil.  If your kids don’t like brown bread, use the white whole grain bread.  I do this and my kids don’t even know it!  Most all beans are a great source of fiber so use them to your advantage and buy cereals with high fiber.  You can do all these things and give your kids a fiber boost with Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies.

The Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies have been a helpful part of both my kids’ diets.  They really do help them stay more regular.  Pedia-Lax also has a great journal that you can print to keep track of how well your child’s bowel movements are going and they also have some fun awards that you can print for your kids for eating healthier!  By visiting the Pedia-Lax website, you can learn all kinds of great tips and information on how to keep fiber in your kids’ diets.

The product was sent to me for free by the company for my use and review. I was not paid to write my review and my opinions are 100% my own.

Buy It:  Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies can be purchased over the counter at Target and Walgreens and other supermarkets and retailers nationwide.  You can also purchase them online.  Check the store locator on the Pedia-Lax website to find a store near you.  You can also get a $1.00 off coupon.  The suggested retail price is $7.99 for a bottle of 60 gummies.
