Grapes!

We cut up (or ask parents to if they bring in a packed lunch) all small hard fruits e.g., cherry tomatoes, grapes and cherries - I'm sure that I read somewhere that a child died choking on a meat ball too. If anyone quibbles I take that tack that we are ensuring the safety of 30 children at lunch time and not just one so if it helps keep them safe so be it. We have pampered chef knives too which means that the children can cut up their own as well

on our first aid last week they spoke about the need to cut up things like grapes until children well into infant school - to remember to cut long ways and not across too.

apparently in usa a child died choking on a hot dog sausage -the type you get in tins - it is the perfect size to stick in a child's throat and where it is slippery and slimy almost impossible to get out.
