In brief: Ask your doctor
If your child has already been diagnosed with a vitamin or mineral deficiency or other disorder, the pica will resolve when the underlying condition is treated.
Pica is a symptom of a medical problem, so if you see the symptom but do not know the reason your child is eating nonfood substances, you should take them to their pediatrician asap.
