What should I do to my 13 month old daughter who ate her poop ?

What should I do if my 13 months old ate poop? My daughter is now 13 months old. Yesterday, after changing her diaper i decided to give her some air time. I put her on the floor. in less than five minutes I saw her coming to me with poop all over her including her mouth. She is a very good eater knowing my daughter she my have eaten 95% of that poop. What should I do?
