Boo- Bearing-Ton

so I've been noticing progress in using the potty pad for potty training yet when Boo poops on his pad I find him turning right around to eat it, I only caught him once eating it but lately if I see him pooping on his pad I go get a tissue to quickly clean up after him so he won't eat it, it disappears by the time I return
First off is this a puppy habit I've never seen an older dog do this and have seen on animal planet that puppy's will start eating poop when they know there mother has abandoned them, so they clean up behind them selves
Second how do I stop this behavior?
There will be no more kisses to Boo until this habit is stopped, EW!
