Hello.Your child has had a virus.Virus in children often cause problems in poo(diarrhea, mucus). That's normal.
Only if you see mucus in poo after 4-5 days or if he have fever, abdomen pain or very decreased appetite you should go to your pediatrician to examine him and request poo analysis.By now is recommended to take food as rice, chicken, apple, banana, carrot, bread toast or ham york.
I wish you good health
