Do Ziggy Bars help soften stool?

We get how challenging it can be, especially for kids and those on the spectrum, to face the discomfort of hard stools. That's why our Ziggy Bars are made with a caring blend of ingredients. Chia seeds are a fantastic source of fiber that can help to create a more manageable texture, making things a bit easier. Plus, the coconut oil in our bars is not just for taste—it's rich in MCTs (Medium-Chain Triglycerides), known for their supportive role in softening stool. Combined, these ingredients are part of our commitment to providing a snack that can offer a little ease when it’s needed.
