“Do not be deceived by its soft and small appearance, even such a tiny grape could obstruct a child’s respiratory tract”, said Public Health Malaysia in the post.

Luckily and fortunately, the child is safe and the grape was removed via surgery.

Public Health Malaysia concluded their post by reminding people that it’s definitely okay for children to eat fruits but just remember to slice them into the appropriate sizes, especially when giving to children.
