One of my sons had a similar issue and I couldn't get him to buy off on prune juice, either! I ended up buying Benefiber, a flavorless soluble fiber product that yields similar results as prune juice. I dissolved in it milk or sprinkled it into foods -- he never knew the difference and it really did help the situation.
Another friend of mine with a son with similar issues simply tried to increase her son's intake of vegetables. Since he didn't like vegetables, she lightly steamed them, then used her blender to puree them, then added them to spaghetti sauce and soups and other foods he would eat. She had to be diligent and creative about it, but it helped him without having to resort to prune juice!
I know this doesn't really answer your question, but hope it helps provide some options for your friend!
