Hello.
I hope I'm writing in the right place, could do with some help on my DD who is 3.

I have noticed over the past few weeks her stools are mushy, a greeny/yellow colour, and complains of tummy ache just before. Occasionally she has normal coloured and solid stools. I just

It's half term where I live so I have paid more attention to when it happens after food etc.
Today's she eaten 3 small bowls of cereal (Cheerios and Whole milk) she is up at the crack of dawn so it's between 6am-8am.
Soon after she had eaten she went to the toilet and it was the mushy kind, that happend twice.
She has homemade chicken and veggie soup with a white bap and 1 slice of half and half bread, had a nap and was fine. She went for a nap and woke up, played then say about 1 hour after had diarrhea, but wasn't green or yellowy.

During the night she went to the toilet and passed a normal coloured huge (my DH said) stool. She has been constipated and is full of wind.

Rang the docs for advice and they have booked her in for a blood test as it sounds like ceolic.

The thing is, she has a really shit diet. She doesn't like anything, with DD1 at this age I could name at least 5 meals should would eat, I can't even name 1 for DD2.

She loves cereal, Egg, cucumber, those Peppa pig yogurts, pepper, carrots, pears, crackers and that's it. She's a picker at meal time. But would eat biscuits, cake and sweets all day if I let her, I don't obviously!

Could it be down to her diet? Or could she have coeliac? Or even dairy problems.

It is possible for it to be Coeliac disease, my son was diagnosed with it at 16 months old.
If she is having the blood test it is important to keep her eating gluten in the meantime.
