When do foals start eating grass?

Very quickly. In fact, foals are so prone to eating solid food quickly - especially grain - that it can cause growth problems if you aren't careful (They steal mom's grain and grow too quickly).

In a natural or pasture state, foals start to sample grass at 1 week and will be grazing significantly by 2 to 4 weeks, although they continue to visit the milk bar for months.
