Fiber guidelines for children

"Age + 5," is a dietitian's rule of thumb for the daily fiber needs of children ages 3 to 18, say nutritionists at the USDA/ARS Children's Nutrition Research Center at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

"To calculate a child's daily fiber requirements, add the child's age to the number five," said Dr. Karen Cullen. For example, an 8-year-old needs 13 grams of fiber a day.

Eating the recommended minimum five or more servings of fruit and vegetables and one or more serving of whole-grain food each day is a healthy way for kids get all the fiber they need.

Other fiber-filled tips include:

· Look for the word "whole" before the name of the grain on food labels and ingredient lists. Some brown-hued breads are simply white bread with coloring.

· Leave the peeler in the drawer when preparing potatoes.

· Served blended fresh, canned or frozen fruit as smoothies.

· Keep ready-to-eat "dip-able" vegetables on child-accessible shelves in the refrigerator.

· Toss extra vegetables and into soups. Sprinkle beans or lentils on salads.
