Dear Moms,

My son is 3Years old. Initially he was drinking plain milk, then we started giving him Pediasure - Vanila Flavour. Now we are giving him Bournvita for few days, since he doesn't like Pediasure.

Now the problem is he has got constipation.. he feels very difficult for passing motion... and because of constipation and pain is avoiding that also....We gave hot water and banana also... Please let me know whether is that due to Bournvita..what other drinks can I give him.... I am worried about that and planning to take him to doctor still if it continues..

Before that i thought of checking with you  all moms.


Thank u,


Amirtha S

Hi Amirtha,

I dont think Bournvita/Complan anything that we give them will lead to constipation,does he takes his veges and fruit quota daily,u've to chek that also i guess.As for me,i'm giving Bournvita(mentioned for 2-5yrs) for both my kids and so far,no complaints...

The only thing i'm concerned with is the black deposit found with bournvita,boost etc(choc drinks) not with complan though,has anybody noticed this diff....what r these?

My daughter 2.3 is also taking bournvita,she hasnt had any constipations so far.

And as for black residue in the end i guess its just coco and nothing to worry about. i have been having boost for ages now, and am quite fit and healthy. Even today "Boost is the secret of my Energy"Too many biscuts or maida in diet may be one of the reason.Try giving him some prunes he should be ok!

Reason for constipation problem:

  After dinner give him luke-warm water with 1tsp Pure ghee

  Black Resins - (Black manuka) soak in water ask her to drink anytime

  Less in-take of fibre,water is the main reason....
