Observe: f there are no breathing difficulties, problems with excessive drooling, coughing or choking, watch for any changes from his usual baseline. If any of the warning signs occur, please see the Emergency department. A follow up appointment in one week is suggested.

Basics: This is common. If the kid can swallow fluids without difficulty that material has passed into the stomach. It will pass quietly through the gut & into the poop in 2-3 days. If the kid has an unrelenting cough or choking spell it would suggest something caught in the throat or windpipe. what you describe suggests this did not happen.
