of course it's Boxing day/ St Stephens day...and my 10 year old is struggling. I have just given her some figs and an orange, but wondering what foods too avoid?

Reduce meat intake (or none at all). Try to reduce sugar and cholesterol. Keep her hydrated (fruit juices esp. - good for the bowels) and try to get her to take exercise or keep physically active in some way.
Have suppositories or enema kit to hand just in case (safer than oral laxatives esp. if needed often).
