A while ago there was a thread about some laxatives for kids;
non-habit forming and non-addictive. It is available OTC.
I can't find that. I tried Benefiber chew able tablets,
they seem to give him a bloated tummy. This is for a 6yr old.

High fiber foods like bran muffins, figs, most other dried fruits.

Also, plenty of water, fresh fruits and veggies. If the problem is
caused by the 6yo not eating fruits and veggies, I'd definitly
reccomend the dried fruit.

Yep. A little cardboard box of sultanas (raisins) or mixed dried fruit and
nuts eaten each day might be a good start to get things moving. I'd up the
water intake as well because sometimes children that age get by on a few
mouthfuls of liquid a day, become dehydrated and the moisture gets drawn out
of their stools.

There is Senokot, which is easily found at most any drugstore in the US. I
don't know where you are.
