Avoid oily spicy and fast food Avoid rice Avoid chips Kurkure chocolate biscuits etc Give him more fruits and vegetables Give him home made fresh food Promote him for outdoor play Instead of giving aloe Vera juice give him Syp Triphala by Himalaya 5ml. Twice a day Re Consult me on lybrate after 15 days for further advice

Dear lybrate user first of all, thank you for the wonderful question. Would not recommend aloe vera juice for a 3 year old kid, though the laxative properties of aloe vera are scientifically proven, its safety is still in question. The juice might cause abdominal pain or cramps. The following points should be considered for the diet of your kid: - see that your child consumes enough fluids in the whole day. - add fibre to his diet - feed him whole fruits instead of juices - add atleast one cup of vegetables in his diet in the whole day. Regards.
