Some foreign bodies such as seeds, toy parts, grapes, hot dogs, pebbles, nuts, buttons, coins, carrots, batteries, and much more things may be stuck while eating. In the absence of timely action, many deaths have been victimized through this only at or below the age of 4.
Toddlers are not mature enough to understand the things, they may swallow the things while playing or while getting bored. If the food is not completely chewed, it may get stuck in the eating tube or airway tube, leading to breathing problem.
