It’s a good idea not to encourage your children to eat unidentified berries that they find out and about in hedgerows, even if you know they are safe to eat. If your kids get into the habit doing so, they might well eat something that may be poisonous one day. Having said that, there will not be much you’ll be able to do about some children picking fruit and putting it in their mouth.

If your child were to eat poisonous berries while under the care of a third party, you should take some claims advice in Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen if he or she were to fall ill.
Poisonous berries and claims advice in Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen
Picture the scene; your child has just started her first day at school. You’ve been into the classroom with her to help her settle down with her new teacher, and all seems to be going swimmingly. After the settling in time has finished, you off head for home to do some work, happy that your daughter seems to be more than comfortable where she is.
Unfortunately, you receive a call a few hours later from the school informing you that your daughter has been taken ill. You rush to the school and find your child looking more than a little peaky. You are told that she wandered over and ate some poisonous red berries that had been allowed to grow in the corner of the playground.
