Paramedic mum shares why she says you should NEVER let your kids eat in a moving car

An Australian paramedic mum has revealed why parents should NEVER allow their children to eat in the back of the car.

Nikki, who has an Instagram page called Tiny Hearts Education – shared a video that highlighted the dangers of choking.

“Remember guys, choking is silent – if you’re driving and concentrating on the road, you’re not going to hear it and you’re not going to be aware,” she said in the clip.

In the post, Nikki said: “One of my parenting non-negotiables is no eating in the car, unless I’m in the back and keeping an eye on them…

“Choking is silent, and you are not going to hear it, especially if your little one is rear ward facing.

“I see it all the time.”

Meanwhile, another nugget of advice from Nikki is to refrain from allowing kids under three to have marshmallows in their babyccinos.

In another clip, she stated: “Marshmallows in babyccinos are a no-no. They melt and become sticky.

“Easily can get stuck in a tiny airway and will be hard to get out! Hold the marshmallows or eat them yourself until they are 3.”

Great advice, Nikki! Thanks so much for giving us permission to share your videos.
