There are also some foods that should be avoided – stickier ones like peanut butter or ones too easy to swallow like chewing gum should not be given to a young toddler.

She thanked the mother of the child who allowed the photo to be shared, as well as the pediatrician who operated on the child to remove the blockage.
Share away, people.
