I am not sure about your little girl's diet. If she is mainly drinking Nido and having milk in the evening is she also on a good mixed diet? She needs to drink water and to eat lots of fruit. She can have dilute fruit juice once a day and her diet should contain lots of fibre [weetbix, whole wheat bread] Benefiber is a fibre-rich product that is safe for you son.
