There are a number of contributory factors that can lead to constipation, some of which include:

• lack of or not enough fibre in diet
• change in routine or lifestyle
• ignoring the urge to pass stools
• medication side effects
• not drinking enough fluids
• immobility or lack of exercise
• anxiety or depression

Constipation in children can be caused due to poor diet, fear of using the toilet and problems during toilet training.
