Top Tip:

Each day around 40 under 5's are rushed to hospital after choking on something, or swallowing something dangerous. Food is the most likely cause. When preparing grapes regardless of how small they are, they must be cut lengthwise to reduce the width so that they will not cause a choking hazard to young children.
