Preventing Choking for Kids

Putting things in their mouths is one of the ways that babies and small children explore their worlds. Choking is usually caused by food, toys, and other small objects that can easily lodge in a child's small airway anything that fits can be a danger. Parents, encourage children to sit when eating and to chew thoroughly. Teach them to chew and swallow their food before talking or laughing. Never let your children run, play sports, or ride in the car with gum, candy, or lollipops in their mouths. If your kids is under 4yr-old, never give smooth foods that can partially or completely block the windpipe, such as: nuts of any type ,sunflower seeds and watermelon with seeds. For giving toys, always follow all manufacturers' age recommendations when buying toys. Some toys have small parts that can cause choking, so heed all warnings on a toy's packaging.
