Foods to avoid that can cause Choking Hazards

Raw vegetables, grapes, raisins, popcorn, marshmallow, gums, nuts and hard candy aren’t easy to sallow and as a result can cause choking in babies. Peanut butter too is very thick and can get stuck in your little one’s throat. So avoid this as well. Also, never give large food chunks as they will never pass down through their throats resulting in heavy choking.
