Protect Your Child, Familiarize Yourself with These Chocking Hazards

Every year, more than 250 children in the United States ages four and under choke to death on common foods and household objects. According to the American Red Cross, the top culprits include the following:

Popcorn
Grapes
Nuts
Hard candies
Deflated balloon pieces
Coins, pins, buttons, and other small items
Small toys and toy parts
Small, circular pieces of hot dogs
Raw vegetable, like carrots, that are cut into circles rather than strips

To protect your child, be sure to monitor meal and snack time. Scan your home daily for small hazardous items and remove them from reach promptly. Check toys for small, removable or broken parts and do not leave your child unattended in unfamiliar places.
