It is normal for pigs to bite off more than they can chew, being greedy, in itself not to much of a concern. However, you have to be sure that the pig is actually able to chew, to know that the pig is eating everything and it's not the case that they are not chewing their food properly because of a dental or oral problem.

I understand what you are saying about your parents, but the points raised in the latter part of this post I am linking you to, from someone elses previous thread, need to be considered:
