  • If his health is fine, i would not even worry about it. Sometimes those fruity snacks can really alter the color of your child's poo. Anything that has dye in it can. I remember when we went to disney, my daughter ate this weird sour blue powder stuff......her poop was neon blue for 2 whole days! It was quite fascinating & funny! He just ate something that changed the color of his poo, i would not worry about it at all.

  • did your child eat a lot of green veggies lately, green jello, pudding or play-doh? has it only been going on for 1 day or more. I wouldn't worry too much there are food colors out there that will turn poop green. It happens to a lot of people every so often. I know when I had my sons b-day cake made It looked like a race car tire so it was colored black. we all had green poop the next day, aren't you glad I shared that with you.....lol I know TMI !!

  • I have always heard that "green poop" meant not enough veggies in the dieat. Has your soon being skipping his usual veggies for the past few days?

  • What's he been eating? If he's been eating green, he will poop green.

  • My daughter sometimes has green poop and my mom ( a nurse) told me that it could be that she is producing excess bile, doctor said its not a problem since she is healthy and not causing stomach problems.
