Maybe it would help to make him his own bite-sized challah so he can pop the whole thing in his mouth at once. Even if it is smaller than a kzayis, but for a nine year old it would be suficient. Alternatively, he could be given a piece of egg matzo. Even though we don't eat it on Pesach the crumbs he creates would not be an issue. Also, you can make hamotzi outside in your yard or porch and brush him off before reentering the house for the rest of the Shabbos meal.
A Kosher and happy Pesach for the whole family.
