Good digestive health helps your child in many ways, ensuring they gain weight and grow to reach physical and mental developmental milestones. Good digestive health includes eating three healthy meals with snacks per day, drinking enough water and going to the bathroom regularly. Every child’s bowel movement schedule is different. However, bowel movements should be consistent and painless.
Digestive issues can manifest in many ways. If your child has any of the following common symptoms, talk to your child’s health provider to find out if your child should see a pediatric gastroenterologist.
