Thank you for your query.

It is very normal for children to pass mucus in the stool. As you have not mentioned the frequency, consistency and colour of the stool I presume that it may be normal. However if he is passing loose frequent stools then I suggest that you get a stool routine examination done.

Most of the time your eating should not affect the stools of the child. However, after eating the same item on different occasions causes problem to the child then you should avoid.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.
