Help Identifying this plant !

I have a 2 yr old nephew running around and eating all the fruit trees in the yard. There is only one plant we prevent him from going near because we have no idea what it is. I am scared it could be poisonous any help would be appreciated

Looks like some kind of Myrica to me but out of your zone and with poison being the issue I would talk to local experts at poison control. If it is a Myrtle they are not poison and are eaten. Like I said though I'm no expert on your Zone.
