Dear Genevieve
I would recommend that you also have your daughter checked by a medical doctor as halitosis and smelly stools can be caused by a wide variety of underlying problems (poor digestion, enzyme deficiencies, tonsil problems, sinusitis, allergies, etc). Let's first obtain a diagnosis and then make dietary changes if these should be required. Excessive intake of sulphur-containing foods (raw and cooked onions, garlic, cabbage) can cause smelly stools, but it is not probable that these foods would cause halitosis.
