Brief Answer:
Foreign body throat

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcare Magic and thanks for putting up the query
A crumb getting struck in throat can be a sign of some esophageal pathology at this age. My advice is you should eat bananas and boiled potatoes and if still the feeling of something struck doesn't go, you should get an endoscopic examination of throat done.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Thanks and regards
