Options: It seams diet has triggered some changes in pooping pattern.If you can relate this in time to the squash that is a likely trigger. Rice slows pooping. Delaying solids until a kid sits well is preferred & adding slowly with a diary to note such pooping changes so food reactions are avoided. Food changes are usually evident in 3 days, disappear within a week of stopping & re-appear if restarted
