There is a product called Thumb, that is like a nail polish that tastes bitter. I found it at Walgreens in the baby section. It's worth a try!

Waiting for others to reply. My son started biting his nails just before he turned 2. Sometimes his toe nails yuck. Pediatrician said he hadn't seen this at such a young age but shouldn't be harmful. I'm not so sure.
