My kids ( two kids 2.5 yrs & 1.5 yrs) have recently started passing green stool without any symptoms. No colic pain, no major change in food habits only relocated to UAE from India but most of the time entirely indoors.
So is it due to dehydration of suddenly shifting to AC environment from the otherwise natural open editionnvironment?
No symptoms mentioned on the website match the kids condition.
Kindly reply

  • Certain foods can turn your stools green...black licorice has done it to me. A search on the internet showed that certain food coloring can cause green poo. Purple koolaid and some popsicles were listed as causing green poo.

  • You'd be suprised food coloring in certain foods even popsicles and fruit roll ups, fruit chews, even fruit loops. My son had red stool and I connected it to fruit loops and the dye in it.

  • My 3 yr old had blue Gatorade because of other digestion issues. The other symptoms have all went away and the green poop got me worried. But your discussion around food coloring helped. If the green poop was actually accompanied with diarrhea then it'd be cause for more proactive reaction than wait-and-watch.
