    It’s probably  Hypericum Androsaemum, sometimes called Tutsan or St Johns Wort. Berries are toxic so be mindful of that. Used often for flower arrangers. A lovely easy plant.

    A great many popular garden plants are poisonous if eaten.  Children need to be taught not to eat anything they find anywhere, without consulting a grownup.  Until you can rely on them to do that, it's best to supervise them in the garden.  That's not being paranoid, it's being a caring and responsible parent.
