My 3 DD is always saying shes got tummy hurts
The doctor health works all seem to think its her just wanting something to say
She is not potty trained and still has very lose poo
Today the first time today shes been sick
I don't know if that's just a bug
I am really at a lose
Her nursery teachers have said she never complains to them
Am I just making a fuss over nothing?

No you are right to be concerned. She is prob distracted at school with her friends but notices at home. loose stool is not a good sign.I would tell her ped about the loose stool. She may have a food intolerance or celiac

I agree.  I also recommend that you start a food journal of everything that she eats, and her stools, frequency and consistency.  If he does suspect that there is some kind of issue or sends you to a specialist, then they are going to have you do those anyway, so that you can track down any connections and begin to eliminate possibilities.

I don't need to keep a journal
She eats nothing
Well she has two or 3 mouth fulls of toast for breakfast
A tiny amount out a ham sandwich for lunch with crisps sorry frys small amount of a chocolate bar
Dinner a small spoon of mash small amout of veg No meat she will not eat meat
Shes very ocd with food
It has to be apple juice
Shes always had problems with eating
Her diatision says give high cal foods often
But if its not what she wants she will not eat

She already has a dietician? Then they should be aware that something is wrong. It sounds like she might have some kind of sensory disorder with the food. I know the journal seems like a ridiculous thing, but in my experience most doctors are going to require it, and if you already have your observations in place, then you can skip that step and move on to getting help. I just know how it works in America though. I am not familiar with the health systems in any other countries.

 The juice could be causing the loose stools.
Just keep offering her the foods that you want her to eat. Make her try 2 bites before she can get down etc. Stay consistant. What does her dietitian say?

She could be dairy and/or gluten sensitive, which would mean strange bowel movements and stomach pains

I would try taking to the Dr with an exact food diary-amounts, what you offer versus what she eats.

My son had this whenever he would just take a bit of something dairy....try to watch for what she eats  right before she starts to complain or has a problem....my son would hardly finish a meal and zoom into the bathroom.  He is now 5 and for supper I let him have a rare treat of V8 fruit drink with his meal....just about 5mn. after the meal....zoom, into the bathroom!  He said, that was that juice that made me do that!
