Fiber helps with normal digestion and bowel movements, as well as the prevention of chronic disease. In general, children are not eating enough fiber. Fiber intake for infants is not determined, but for toddlers aged 1-3, an intake of 19 grams (gm) per day is needed; children aged 4-8 years need 25 gm each day.

Good sources of fiber include: all beans, bran cereal, split peas, artichokes, pears, whole wheat English muffins, peas, raspberries, sweet potatoes (with skin), prunes, figs, apples, almonds, greens, bananas, and dates.
