I have mild pica, and it's like a craving. But not just that, your brain kind of fails to connect certain things to the group of "things that are not food". So you could for example see a piece of paper and a piece of toast, and your brain is like: "Oh, both food. Yum!"
It can change with age, he might stop doing this completely at some point, or he might move on to diffrent things. Eventually it can get to the point of feeling like "I HAVE to eat that!" and thats something you have to work on, it's like a very strong craving and it can be incredibly upsetting.
I luckily don't have many issues with it. I used to eat pens when I was like 13 lmao.

I don't have pica, but I've worked a lot around children with various needs. Some of it could be sensory driven, does your son have a chewy or something that could aid in easing the sensory aspect of that behavior?

For me it's worse when I restrict. Like I get really hungry and I want something in my mouth but I don't want the calories so I'll chew on paper or thread just to keep my mouth busy.
I don't get cravings or whatever it's just a thing I do. I think it started because I went through trauma as a kid & I was really nervous so I started chewing on things.
