A:A common problem at this age is toddlers diarrhoea. It is due to a rapidtransit time of the passage of stools in the gut. It can of course be madeworse by such problems as infection or cows milk intolerance. A simple testfor toddlers diarrhoea is to use a high-fat low-roughage diet which often results in dramatic improvement.
