Children will swallow anything, and everything, if they are not watched. You need to keep a closer eye on him, consistently correct him when he puts foreign objects into his mouth, and with consistent correction, and redirection, he will change the behaviour.

Generally, iron deficiency will not have a symptom such as 'eating every non food item in sight'...
