Cow's-milk free diet for treatment of childhood constipation

According to a study,  that was publish in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology Nutrition, in august 2010, cow's-milk free diet could be an option treatment in childhood chronic constipation.

In that study, they found out that cow's-milk consumption was associated with constipation for more than 1/3 of the pediatric patients, and that elimating cow's-milk from the diet reduced the incidence of constipation by 39%.

So cutting, cow's-milk from the child diet, and replacing it with rice milk for example, could be a natural and easy treatment, for chronic constipation in children.
