General Surgeon 's  Response
may be he is putting too much at a time in mouth and while swallowing in hurry getting chocked
just tell him to eat slowly and little at a time
excessive talk and laughing during eating can cause the problem also
if after this is taken care of if he develops the same problem consult paediatrician to rule out any clinical problem
hoping your kid soon be trouble free
