Hi there. My name is***** will do my best to help with your question. Please give me a moment while I check the chemical safety information for the product.

Could you please provide a description of how much he might have consumed (eg. a handful, a tablespoon, a whole box etc.)?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Probably 2 tablespoons
Expert:  Dr Chris replied 6 months ago.

Thanks. I've read through the published safety data, and I think the product is unlikely to cause any toxicity issues based on what it is made of (silicon dioxide and polydimethyl siloxane​).

If he had eaten a larger amount, such as handfuls, I would have started to be concerned about the possibility an intestinal blockage. But I would consider that highly unlikely with 2 tablespoons. That amount should be able to pass through his gut without issue.

Always a good idea to monitor his appetite, defecation and for any vomiting regardless, as with any accidental ingestions. But I think you are safe this time.
