Whole grapes are another food that can cause choking in young children. In fact, grapes are said to be the third most common cause of death among kids who die in choking incidents involving food.
To reduce the risk of airway obstruction and choking, buy seedless grapes that are small and cut them into quarters before serving to your children. Or, just don’t serve grapes until your kids are older.
Whole Cherry Tomatoes
Cherry tomatoes are about the same size as grapes or larger, so when served whole they can lodge in the throat of young children and block off the air passage, leading to tragic choking incidents.
Should you stop feeding your little ones cherry tomatoes? They’re delicious and nutritious, so perhaps not. However, parents should cut them into quarters or smaller before serving and be cautious.
