In brief: Choking

Cut foods such as grapes and other fruits, meat, cheese, and raw vegetables into small pieces and shapes that will not block the airways.
Cut hot dogs lengthwise and well as widthwise. Always Make the child sit up straight when eating .

In brief: Sit chew &no peanut

Make them chew small bites well while sitting.
Swallow before the next bite. No walking playing around and eat. Peantus shoudl be avoided until at least age 6 since it is very bad if they get into the lungs.
