While there is no daily recommended value (DRV) for dietary fiber, the American Heart Association recommends children consume between 19 g and 31 g per day depending on age. The lack of adequate dietary fiber intake can lead to many digestive problems, such as occasional constipation, gas and bloating. Occasional constipation is a common condition, caused in part by poor diet and lifestyle. The prevalence of refined sugars and carbohydrates and the low presence of fiber in the Western diet has been linked to the slowing of bowel transit time and the alteration of the colon environment. Dietary fiber, which is mostly obtained from plant foods, consists of the indigestible portion of the plant while the sugars, starches and vitamins are broken down into nutrients and absorbed by the intestines. These cell walls of plants are not digested and become the bulk or roughage component of the stool, which help maintain bowel health and regularity.
Ready! Set! Go! is a blend of all-natural fruits and plant extracts for children with occasional constipation. The ingredients in this blend, which include prunes, psyllium husks, and ginger, have been used historically for the relief of occasional constipation and to soothe an achy stomach. Ready! Set! Go! has a pleasant flavor for easy compliance.

We have been using Ready Set Go for five months, and it is the only thing that really works for our 8 yo son who has a neuromuscular disease, and is therefore prone to getting backed up and having sluggish bowel movements. Forget the suppositories and laxatives! This thing is natural, feels gentle on the child, tastes like maple syrup, and it WORKS. For maintenance we do the 1tsp a day as recommended, but by doctor's orders we started with 2tsp twice a day for a week to get him going, then 1 tsp twice a day for one week, and then down to the recommended dose.
My son had a stomach virus this fall and had to be in the hospital for 5 days to get fluids. Doctors there were worried about him getting backed up and were trying to feed him Senna, hid in a very unpleasant chocolate pudding "bomb", and of course my son wasn't going to eat it given he was getting over a stomach bug. I instead gave him the 2tsp of Ready Set Go twice a day, and I just KNEW he would respond to it. Doctors looked at me like I was nuts. Sure enough, day after we started it the floodgates opened, no Senna needed. LOVE this stuff!
kids love it
