Food hazards for toddlers

Toddler’s have one-third the jaw strength of an adult. Softer meats are good alternatives, such as fish, hamburger and high quality lunchmeats.

Hard to chew red meats and other foods also pose choking hazards for toddlers. Never serve anything larger than a dime and be sure to cut your toddler’s food into small, manageable pieces and never leave your child unattended while he’s eating.
