Kids ‘n Fiber

Like adults, youngsters need dietary fiber. By helping our digestive system work effectively, fiber plays an important role in maintaining good health. Great natural sources of fiber include:

Beans, like navy, pinto, kidney, and black or white
Peas, like split peas, chickpeas, and black-eyed peas
Fruit, like pears, raspberries and prunes
Vegetables, like spinach, carrots, and broccoli
Whole grain cereal, whole grain bread, and whole grain pasta
