Many injuries can be avoided by taking preventive steps at home, on the road, and when you're at play.
Something as simple as getting out of bed properly can help to ease strain on your
back and prevent injury.
Infants and children under age 4 are particularly at risk for choking on food or small objects because their upper airways are smaller, and they tend to explore things with their mouths.
Choking hazards in the home: round, firm foods, such as grapes and popcorn, and small
nonfood items, such as coins, balloons, and marbles.
Because most accidental child strangulations, chokings, and suffocations happen in
the home, it's important to carefully childproof your residence.
You can help keep your children safe by following these precautions.
