ABSTRACT
According to the National SAFE KIDS Campaign in the U.S., anything that can fit in a child's mouth and block his airway is a possible threat. The parents should always supervise children who are six years of age and under while eating and be aware of several choking hazards for children under 4. Food items such as nuts and seeds, hard candies, gummy candies and raw, unpeeled apple or pear slices may block a child's mouth. Such things like deflated balloons, rings, earrings, nails and screws should be kept out of reach of small children.
