    Most common foods that are a choking hazard


    Read on if you’ve been wondering what the most common foods that are a choking hazard are. Whilst choking is heavily associated with babies and children, many adults experience choking whilst eating every year. People who are worried about choking when eating are advised to chew properly before swallowing and to avoid large gulps. It’s also a good idea to have easy access to fluids whilst you eat to support the swallowing process.

    Which foods represent a choking hazard?

    Alcohol can also be a choking hazard, which is why people are advised to only drink modest amounts of it whilst they are eating. One of the main reasons why alcohol is a choking hazard is that it can affect our judgement significantly. Talking whilst eating can also heighten the risk of choking, as can putting more food into your mouth so it becomes overloaded. Grapes, popcorn and grapes are amongst the most dangerous foods to consume with regards to choking, as are hot dogs and carrots, which can become lodged in the throat. Foods with challenging textures like overcooked chicken and peanut butter can be problematic, much like steaks and large sandwiches, which many people opt to take large bites from.

If so, we may be able to help you get compensation.
