One time my nephew had really white stool but it was cause something he ate. My daughter had hot pink for like a week after her first b-day cause of the icing on the cake. Also I have seen bright green caused from Hawaiian punch and fruit loops. If your worried about it i would call your doctor.

Pale, yellow stools can be a sign of liver disease, but kids have stool color changes a lot without much reason--it may have something to do with how fast the food goes through the intestines. Liver disease will often cause a yellow color to the eyes and skin, loss of appetite and the liver may become enlarged. It may be just because she is drinking too much milk. That brings me to the more important question--How much milk is she drinking? Some children at this age will drink so much milk that they don't eat anything. If you the stools do not change in the next few days (after cutting down a bit on her milk) I would call your pediatrician...just to double check :) Good Luck and I hope this helps.

If your daughter has had antibiotics lately that could cause off color stool.
First thing I do when anyone in my family has tummy trouble is give them yogurt. It has beneficial bacteria in it, and sometimes thats all you need to set you right.
If she is eating well, not complaining of stomach pain, and otherwise her normal self, I would just keep an eye on it.

Well for babies it can indicate a problem absorbing nutrients, but obviously by 2 1/2 years you would have noticed that problem. Its probobly a mild diareha, I would give her plenty of fluids, and call the doc if it lasts more than a few days.
