No, you should not have eaten this.

You (Possibly) Ate WHAT?! Filter: I turned my back for a second and lo, the toddler in my care had a small piece of styrofoam in his mouth.

How on earth do I ascertain whether or not he actually swallowed any? If he did, what symptoms should I expect to see?
(He's acting totally normal and I have no reason to believe that he is in imminent danger. Of course, if anything drastic changes and I have any reason to believe that he's seriously ill, I will call 911.)
(The styrofoam was of the old-styrofoam-cooler type and not, say a packing peanut. The chunk I found was a small cube perhaps 1/4" tall.)
