3. Maximum milk consumption per day should not exceed 300-400ml
4. Minimum 3-4 cups of fruits and vegetables to be consumed per day
5. Toilet training - that is - sitting in XXXXXXX type of lavatory daily at the same time will help a lot.

Brief Answer:
Suggestions on constipation

Detailed Answer:
Hi... the best way to give natural fibre is only fruits.

I think even though your daughter is adamant and againist taking fruits you should somehow convince her to take the fruits because any other food you give her including fruit juices without any fibre is not going to help in constipation.

You need to restrict the dietary intake of milk to 300 ml maximum per day.

Apart from this you need to give her at least one and half litres of water to make the formed stool bulky. This will add on to the fibre in the stools from the fruits and give her a permanent relief from constipation.
