Since posting this yesterday, I have heard from 2 friends, both with kids, who recommended getting Leah tested for an Iron Deficiency. Supposedly, the desire to eat the bizarre is a symptom. So, I will be making an appointment with the pediatrician tomorrow! Thanks everyone for their good advice.
Keep you posted!
P.S. because someone is going to ask ................ today's school report was that she ate Play dough. She apologized to her teacher very politely an explained "it's just that the play dough tasted just like Spaghetti".
