As you know, some foods are a choking hazard for young children. A 2008 study listed the 10 that were rated as the most dangerous: hot dogs, peanuts, carrots, boned chicken, candy, meats, popcorn, fish with bones, sunflower seeds, and apples. It is vitally important to slice and cut all foods into small chew-able bites. Do not cut hot dogs into nickel sized chunks. Food should be no bigger than 1/2″ in any direction. You may want to consider using the Safe Sizer Choking Prevention Plate which has an integral raised 1/2″ diameter ring which gives parents a visual reminder needed for food size.

KidSafe was recently at the ABC Kids Expo looking for new child safety products and found many that we will be adding to our website.
The Safe Sizer Choking Prevention Plate is an award winning kids plate with a raised 1/2″ diameter ring that provides a visual reminder and measurement device for parents and caregivers to size cut-up food. Always cut your child’s food to a maximum bite size of 1/2″ or less in any direction to prevent choking. For children under 4 years old. Colorful Monkey and Fish designs.
- Children under 2 years old have the highest rate of food related choking deaths
- Children up to 4 years old are the most vulnerable because they do not have a full set of teeth.
