Neon green poop.

My son (23 months) had two neon green poops today. Not watery or anything else weird, just green. He also started with his stuffy/runny nose today. My husband and I thought his stomach was hurting him yesterday night, as well. He hasn't eaten anything out of the norm. in the past week. His veggies these past couple days have been carrots, corn and he ate a few pieces of celery. Other then the celery, I can't think of anything green he would have eaten. All he drinks are water, milk and on occasion chocolate milk. I don't want to jump the gun and assume anything horrible is wrong. He does not have a temperature and he still seems normal (besides extra crankiness.) So just wondering if I should be super worried about the poop, like if it continues to be green tonight and tomorrow. Or I'm thinking it might be because his mucous is draining and that is why the poop is green. Anyway, thanks for the advice.

Our 3 year old had the same thing for about 3 days a week ago. We figured it was a small stomach bug. He had no other symptoms and it went away.

I'm 99% sure he has all his teeth. LOL He hasn't pooped this morning yet, but I think his stomach might be fine now. He did start coughing today, however. When he was about 18 months, he did have a wheeze and needed to get treatment for that, but his wheeze only lasted about a day and a half. Besides that, he hasn't been sick. I was reading about how kids who drank purple juice (which my son hasn't) or kids who ate blueberry yogurt sometimes poop green, so maybe it was the yogurt, although that has never happened before.
