Suggest cause and remedy for green stools in toddlers

My 2 year old daughter was a bit fussy yesterday & had a dark green loose stool. Today she is fussy, has had several stools the same as yesterday, she seems to have low energy & now has a fever of 103.5 ... she isn t verbal enough to tell me if her stomach hurts. Do I need to worry? What could this be?

Hi.

Children do struggle with digestion for the first few years of life and monitoring it does help. A green colour stool with weakness and a fever could possibly be an infection of sorts requiring medical attention so please report to your childs doctor for further management at the earliest.

Best wishes.
