Brief Answer:
Causes of passing green stool in child of 4...

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,

Green stool might be related to:
- foods (green leaf)
- iron supplementation
- frequent bowel movements
- if other symptoms like fever, vomiting, diarrhea, it might indicate bowel infection

Can you please refer if your child is also having other symptoms (fever, vomiting, diarrhea)?

Thank you!
