Choking can happen to anyone
at any age, but most often to toddlers!
Almost any object that fits in the hand of an infant or toddler is a potential choking hazard.
Some of the most dangerous choking hazards include hot dogs, grapes, gel candies, popped balloons and disc batteries.
Talking or moving around with food in your mouth increases your risk of choking (even if you've never choked before).
Here are some simple strategies,
which could save someone’s life:
You can watch out for younger children by removing potential choking hazards at home, at school and at parties.
You can take a baby-sitting or lifeguard course to learn how to save a life. You might save the life of a classmate or even a grown-up.
