Marshmallows- although soft, these tiny white balls of fluff can easily be swallowed whole, causing complete airway obstruction.
Large quantities of peanut butter- This delicious and nutritious snack is terrific. However, ensure it is not in large amounts! I sometimes recommend adding a little bit of water to thin it out.
Dried fruit- These are typically sticky and hard, leading to choking.
String cheese- I never recommend cutting the string cheese; instead, pull it apart or string it to prevent choking.
Raw Vegetables-These hard veggies can get stuck when they break into smaller pieces in the mouth. This can cause a potentially dangerous choking episode.
