I have a 1 1/2 year old who has been having the habit of munching on crayons. CRAYONS!!! Everytime he sees one hes has to eat it. Thank gwadd they are NON TOXIC. But still.. I am hoping this is just a faze bc my oldest cant color in peace with his brother stealing crayons hiding in a corner a munching away on em..

could be they are lacking some type of vitamin or mineral found in the crayon......it's what they found about a child who kept eating the paint off the windows in his home......it lacked iron.........

I've thought about that. But his blood has been checked. I spoke to his pediatrition about this and she said hopefully he grows out of it or he just really likes crayons. Lol.

 My one year old tries to eat them too, but she writes just fine with a pen.
