Well my kids got ahold of the kids fluoride toothpaste and were eating it :/ they are 3 & 1 1/2. I know it's not good for them, but is it super bad?

I wouldnt worry too much. There is not a lot of floride in chidrens tooth paste. They may get a tummy ache tho. Try getting them to drink some water to dilute the toothpaste.

They'll be fine. Just encourage fluids.
