Default Eating Poop!

Taina, my 5 month old pup has recently started eating her poop

I'd like to know if this can be related to some type of nutrient deficiency? When we purchased her I started her on Nutro Natural but in search of a better food we switched to Blue Buffalo. I believe I made a huge mistake in buying a 15lb bag without knowing what I was in for. I'd say theres still about 13lbs of food.

Ive given her pineapple and it has worked but then she will start eating it again. I will be buying another can first thing in the morning.

Also, in recent weeks shes become resistant to pooping in her 'area'. Instead of crating her I have her in the laundry room (about 5'x5' and right next to the kitchen where she can see us) She pees fine on the pads but rarely poos instead preferring to wait until we let her out to play. Could it be shes trying to keep her area clean?

Am I making a mistake in having her bed/food/potty area in the same space? Her bed and food are on one end and her pads/papers on the other. Please help!
