choking hazard at age 2+

Many people assume if their 2 year old has teeth, they can’t choke on a grape.

Most kids that age don’t choke due to a lack of chewing ability but rather if they are not securely seated when eating they can get distracted, running around, see a toy or another child and choke because they are not paying attention. The recommended age for no longer needing to cut up food is 4.
