Sri Nigamahantha Desikaya namah:
Sri Lakshmi naraSimha Paramatmane parabrahmane namah:

The incident u have described is seen in many places.
The prasadam of the lord can be partaken by anyone ,
irrespective of caste , creed or color
and the lord does not distinguish a person by his
looks or the way he is dressed.

Deha Shuddhi is recommended even by the veda's , so
its every person's duty to keep his body and clothes
clean and neat.
even the young child should start developing that
habit right now. may be his clothes are torn , but
even those he could keep it clean and neat.
he could have washed his face , combed his hair.
the basic things should be followed.

This does not mean that i try to prove what the other
bhagavatha did was right, probably he could have asked
the child to have given the prasad directly to the
child and asked him to go  out and have, instead of
sending off the child.

As far as the qualities of a vaishnava is concerned,
it is the pancha samskaras
