We had this problem with DS and bananas (very constipating for him). They were banned in our house for several years, and still are purchased in very small quantities.

When he was about 3, we went to a friend's house for a party (so there was lots of food available). He took a banana, went to an adult, and asked, "Will you open this for me, please?" So polite, and of course the answer was yes. When he finished it, he went and got another one, and asked a different adult.... By the time we noticed what was going on, he had eaten five bananas. He didn't poop for five days after that. eek


That's a riot!
