Health Tip: Avoid Mishaps at Restaurants

Health Tip: Avoid Mishaps at Restaurants

(HealthDay News) -- A restaurant table isn't always designed for kids, so it's important for parents to help little ones enjoy a safe meal.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers this advice:

  • Clear any candles from the table.

  • Remove knives and other sharp utensils from your child's reach.

  • Move packets of sugar, as well as salt and pepper shakers, away from your child.

  • Keep drinks out of your child's reach, except those in a child-friendly cup with a lid.
