There r many reasons for this habit but you may follow for desirable outcome as mentioned here. Keep his nose wet by pouring saline nasal drops 3 to 4 times in a day in each nostrils and watch for his eating habit particularly liking for salty items and /or mud or like eating. Give him home made nutritious diet of his liking. Add supplementary iron. If still you have any query, you may consult me on private chat.
It is a behaviour disorder and self limiting. Behavour modification and positive reinforcement by award is important by proper counseling and communication. There is nothing to worry about. DO NOT SCOLD THE CHILD. TALK TO HIM REGARDING HEALTH HAZARDS AND AWARD HIM FOR COMPLIANCE. BEST WISHES
