  • Any drink with red coloring in it can cause your child's poop to be red. As long as it's all a solid red - I wouldn't worry - if it had threads of dark red , like blood running through it - then I'd be more concerned, but it if's all evenly red colored - the it's the strawberry drink . I used to drink V-8 juice a LOT and mine would turn ORANGE. So, don't worry unless it bloody. Hope this helps you out.
    God Bless you!!!

  • My daughter drinks pediasure.. the strawberry never caused her poop to be red but the chocolate does make it really dark, so its possible! If it worries you you could always call your pedi and ask.

  • yeah the color of the pedisure will make the poop adifferent color that is what my son is on due to him not eating at all and everytime we give him the strawberry one the poop is always a bright pinkish red color
