Hello Divya, please consult a pediatrician first of all. My son used to scratch the walls and eat the coating... We ignored it for few weeks... but when we informed his pediatrician, we were told by the doctor that it was a sign of calcium deficiency along with mild vitamin lacking too and advised us to give our son multivitamin and Calcium drops for few days. Secondly, continuously forbid your baby to eat chalks etc.
