It's a pleasure. I don't think Kiwi fruit should be a problem. What about apples, pears and citrus fruit (when in season)? You may find that you can tolerate most fruits which don't contain pips like those prickly pears, guavas and most berries (except strawberries) and if you peel and/or cook them. Most people have an individual reaction to the foods that cause distress and it may be a good idea to keep a food diary where you note down the foods you eat and the symptoms and severity. This will pinpoint the problem foods that you need to avoid. To increase bowel movements it is better to increase your intake of insoluble dietary fibre (high-bran foods), if dried fruit give you symptoms, but discuss this with your dietitian.
