Hi
Thanks for your query.
Constipation in children is usually related to dietary intake.
I suggest you to give him plenty of fluids.salad,fruits,green leafy vegetables.
Avoid all kind of fried and junk food.
Give him one spoon of honey daily at bed time.
If problem persist get him evaluated by pediatrician as he may need laxative for few days.

Wishing your child good health.
God bless
