Thanks for your query.

I can feel your concerns , mold can cause problem in swallowing the food but in later stages, but it do not cause psychiatric problem.

Children with Iron deficiency do complain of chocking while eating.
Your grand daughter should be examined by an ENT doctor for any obvious blockade in the throat.

There are some tests like barium swallow that can detect any blockade in the esophagus.

If these tests are normal then we can say that this may be a psychiatric problem.

Hope I have answered your query . If you have any other I will be honored to reply that .

Wishing her a speedy recovery.
