 They just called and I really wanted to talk to him doc but she was busy , all the nurse said was just watch it if it says green then take him in, but it could be from his green beans/...

Also, food coloring can turn it green as well. Coloring from frosting etc. but it shouldn't last longer than a day or so.

Anything that they eat can change the color. It's more of a worry if it's liquidy and green. If it's formed, I wouldn't worry.

 All my kids had green poo at one time or another. Grape juice, was one thing that caused it and grape kool-aid. Eating green veggies etc...

depending on what color foods he's eating, it is normal for his bowels to be a different color. If he eats alot of sweets or complains/is in pain that I'd be worried, but if his bm are normal and don't concern him I wouldn't think you should be concerned.
