To be honest, green stool in children or adults is usually not a cause for concern and does not demand any medical treatment. Many times, modifying the diet works to restore normal color of the stool. However, if this doesn't work and green defecation is accompanied by persistent abdominal pain and strange bowel pattern, it suggests intestinal issues. In such cases, taking medical assistance is necessary so as to find out the exact cause and as per diagnosis, take the required treatment at the earliest.
Eating foodstuffs that are not cooked properly or prepared in unsanitary conditions can cause food poisoning. Having contaminated food makes a person fall sick and the illness may give rise to green bowel movement.
In case of passing unusual colored stool (besides brown color) consecutively for 1-2 days, get yourself checked by a trusted physician. The doctor will take a note of your diet and predict the probable cause for discolored bowel movement. If required, a stool analysis will be performed to rule out infection and probable medical conditions. And appropriate treatment will be directed based on the test result for combating the condition.
The artificial preservatives, food colors, food additives, etc. also cause green colored stools. Kids eating green Jell-O, grape-flavored Pedialyte can also suffer from this problem. You need to have a look into your child's diet and think about a change in your child's diet. Children who have a habit of chewing on to crayons, wax colors, etc. also may pass green stools.
