Did you read the link provided by Joyful Tie Dyes? It isn't a big deal if kids eat snow.

Taken from the link:

The amount of bacteria in snow is comparable to the amount of bacteria children are exposed to when they play in dirt.

Making a meal out of snow exposes you to excessive bacteria and potential hazards. Consumed in large quantities, snow can drop your core body temperature. Snow caught from the sky should not harm a child. Even fresh snow cones or other snow treats should not be harmful if, like other desserts, they are enjoyed in moderation.
