A. You can also give him the waxy grains of lecithin to be found at a good health food store. You can add this to his oatmeal or place in unsweetened, organic applesauce. Taking it even further and good for you too, try having 3 tablespoons or ground organic flaxseeds in your oatmeal every day! It will add essential fatty acids to your diet and help to keep your colon clean. You can grind the seeds in a coffe grinder! Keep the flax seeds in the freezer or fridge to preserve its goodness
