Easter chocolate choking hazards

Easter chocolates come in all shapes and sizes, however, some of them can be dangerous! Read this blog to find out which Easter chocolates are suitable for young children.

Aussie supermarket shelves have been stocked with brightly coloured, foiled-wrapped Easter chocolates for the past few months. With Easter only a few weeks away, you might be starting to think about what Easter chocolates you’ll buy your loved ones, or what the ‘Easter Bunny’ might bring.

Easter chocolates come in all shapes and sizes, however, some of them can be dangerous!

Small, solid eggs (like the ones in the image above) pose a serious choking hazard to young children. These eggs can be difficult to bite in half. And if eaten whole, they are the perfect size and shape to lodge in a child’s throat or windpipe and completely block the flow of air.

Your little ones do not need to miss out on the fun and deliciousness of Easter chocolate.

Rather than purchasing small, solids eggs, choose larger, hollow Easter eggs, bunnies, or bilbies instead. Larger, hollow chocolates can be easily broken or bitten into small pieces, which helps to reduce the risk of choking.  

Share this blog with your family and friends to let them know that larger, hollow Easter chocolates are a safer alternative.
