Health Tip: Some Foods Aren't Safe for Toddlers

(HealthDay News) -- Little mouths and throats aren't suited for big chunks of food, which could pose a choking hazard.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says parents should avoid giving their toddlers:

  • Whole hot dogs (should be sliced).
  • Jelly beans and other hard candies, as well as nuts, seeds and popcorn.
  • Thick chunks of peanut butter.
  • Raw crunchy vegetables, such as green beans, carrots or celery.
  • Whole cherry tomatoes or grapes (they should be quartered).
  • Big chunks of meat, fruit, raw veggies or potatoes.
