All Parents Need to See This Frightening X-Ray of a Grape In a Child’s Throat

So please be mindful that not all kids chew their food, are in a rush at school to get in the playground etc.

Please be careful. And when in doubt just cut the damn grapes, baby tomatoes etc.

I’m thankful to the pediatrician that shared this and even more grateful to the Mother who gave consent for this to be shared in order to bring awareness to our community.

SO, moms and dad, be vigilant about cutting up those choking-hazard foods even if your kids are a little older, especially if you have a child like mine who tends to LITERALLY ite off more than he can chew. Also, I can’t recommend enough that you get with your local Red Cross to take a training on the Heimlich maneuver and CPR. God forbid you have to use either of these procedures on your own child, but if they should NEED it, don’t you want to be equipped to save their lives? This post from BabyCenter is a great resource and place to start.

Thanks Finlee and Me, for sharing this reminder to be vigilant about choking hazards!
