Fiber for Kids

By Anne Marie Kuchera, RD

If you are an adult, you have probably read about, heard about, or been counseled about the benefits of eating fiber-containing foods by a health professional. You are probably also aware of the value of fiber for weight management, digestive health, and the prevention of chronic diseases such as heart disease and certain types of cancers.  Fiber is equally important for young people as it is for adults. Yet, the average American adult consumes just 16 grams of fiber per day, falling short of the recommended 25 – 30 grams, and many children miss out on daily fiber as well.
