Green colour of stool could be because of food & digestive juices moving through the intestines rapidly, not allowing time for breakdown of bile. THis can happen in diarrhea or due to drugs like metoclopramide.
Iron supplements, popsicles,gelatin, kool-aid, green leafy vegetables, green coluring used in food can also cause green stools.
You should consult a physician for evaluation including a stool exam.
