Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies **Review & Giveaway**

I had never really given much thought specifically to the fiber in my children's diets. I always paid much more attention to having balanced meals and relatively healthy snacks.

When I was first approached about reviewing the Pedi-Lax Fiber Gummies, I became interested in what the recommendations for fiber intake in children was. I was incredibly surprised when I found out how much fiber kids need too. I had heard something about the child's age plus five grams was what was recommended, that would be 8 grams of fiber per day for Emily since she is 3 years old. According to the American Heart Association's chart, children aged 1-3 need 19 grams of fiber daily, and as with adults for every 1000 calories consumed, there should be at least 14 grams of fiber consumed.

My children were super excited when they saw the Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies we were sent for Emily to try out. They are cute, colorful, appealing little penguins!

They are sugar-free and have no calories, the Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies are naturally fruit flavored and approved by dentists. They are approved for children ages 2-11.

I found it incredibly easy to get Emily to eat her fiber gummies, not so easy to convince her that she could not eat a handful! :)
The fiber supplement has helped ensure that she gets the daily reccomended fiber intake. I find the Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies to be a great addition to her diet, because although she does eat healthy and gets a good amount of fiber, there are days that she is more picky. With these fiber supplements I know that she is consistently healthy amounts of fiber daily.
