Intestinal problems can also interfere with normal stool color and cause green bowel movement. Pregnant women diagnosed with intestinal disorders like Crohn's disease and irritable bowel syndrome also pass green stools. In most cases of Crohn's disease, it is observed that the tissues that form the small intestine become inflamed. So, when the food passes through the intestine, bleeding may occur from the inflamed tissues. The mixing of blood and bile along with the intestinal content may lead to formation of greenish black stools.
A child's digestive system is very sensitive to different foods. The most common cause of food poisoning in children is E.coli. This bacterial infection can lead to dark green or light green stools. If the child suffers from abdominal cramps, fever and green stool is visible for three consecutive days, take your child to a doctor.
