Experimenting with different foods presents certain hazards to a baby. Some children have allergic reactions to certain foods and all children should be closely observed while eating.

Choking is caused by an object becoming lodged in the windpipe. Foods that are a common choking hazard include the following:

   -   Grapes
   -   Vegetables (raw or undercooked and cut into choking sized pieces)
   -   Chunks of Meat
   -   Skins (chicken skin in large pieces, potato skins)
   -   Hard Candy
   -   Chips (especially tortilla chips)
   -   Nuts
   -   Peanut Butter (if offering peanut butter..spread a very thin layer on bread)
   -   Popcorn
   -   Raisins
   -   Anything with pits or large seeds (Cherries, plums)
   -   Unpeeled fruit
   -   Hot Dogs
   -   Beans
   -   Stringy foods (Melted cheese on Pizza strings and clumps, celery, asparagus)
