Answer: 

It is possible that your puppy has a delicate digestive system. I recommend consulting your veterinarian first to rule out any other medical issues.

In some cases it can be either the food or that the kibbles are too small. When the kibbles are too small, some dogs do not chew their food as thoroughly causing the food to be swallowed whole, which makes proper digestion a bit tricky. Does your puppy gulp the food down as though they are starving. Just like people, when they eat their food too quickly they take in a great deal of air which can also cause gas.
