Cut up grapes – they can be deadly

November 1st, 2017

Grapes

Pamela Prentice, Campaigns Manager at the Child Accident Prevention Trust wrote the following:

Doctors have issued a stark warning that young children can choke to death on whole grapes, describing three cases of children who needed emergency treatment:

A five-year-old boy choked while eating grapes at an after-school club. Despite first aid, the grape could not be dislodged and the child had a heart attack and died.

A 17-month-old boy choked while eating grapes with his family at home. Paramedics were called and the grape was eventually removed but the little boy still died.

A two-year-old choked while snacking on grapes in the park. He suffered two seizures and spent five days in intensive care before thankfully making a full recovery. The doctors warn that food is responsible for over half of all fatal choking accidents, with grapes the third most common cause of death in food-related incidents.

Why are grapes so dangerous?

The size and shape of grapes means they can completely plug a child’s airway, and the tight seal produced by the grapes smooth surface makes them difficult to dislodge with standard first aid techniques. Young children are particularly vulnerable to choking on grapes because they don’t  have a full set of teeth and are still learning to chew properly. Their swallow reflex is still developing. Their airway is very small.

It’s why we advise that grapes should be chopped in half lengthways and ideally in quarters.

CRAFTY THINGS

July 12th, 2017

5 Fun EASY PEASY and inexpensive ideas for children’s activities:

  • Making cards
    Make cards for forthcoming birthdays/Christmas and any other special occasions. Children can create their own unique designs or do finger/hand printing (perfect for party invitations).
  • Lining paper drawing
    Lay some lining paper out and ask your child to lay down, draw around them and then ask them to paint themselves; they can also do hand prints with paintbrushes, sponges and other arty materials – brilliant fun.
  • Posters
    On rainy days sit them down with old magazines and get them to cut out pictures and make a creative poster. Mis-matching heads with different bodies will add a humorous touch and they could decorate their finished article with glitter and sticky stars.
  • Papier mache animals
    Mix some water and paper with glue for extra gloop and create little animal sculptures, towers or miniature cars. Once dried your child can put it on their shelf or make something special for a friend or family member.
  • Make butterflies/hanging mobiles
    Set card, tissue paper, glitter and stickers out on a table and help your child create their own butterfly, bird or animal. You can use strong card or wire for the frame and hang it in their room once it’s finished.

Don’t forget to tidy up.

ENJOY!
