Choose your poo

Raising awareness

This ‘Choose your Poo‘ chart can assist your child to become aware of their poo type in order to be able to compare it to what is considered normal.

Choose your Poo chart

The normal range for passing a stool is either a type 3 ‘corn on the cob’ OR type 4 ‘sausage’. We advise speaking with OR seeing a Health Professional if your child is experiencing anything consistently outside this normal range.

The idea of the Bristol Stool Form scale for children is from Professor DCA Candy and Emma Davey, based on the Bristol Stool Form Scale produced by Dr KW Heaton, Reader in Medicine at the University of Bristol. © 2005 Norgine Limited manufacturer of MOVICOL®-Half
