Children are very inquisitive people, learning through play and discovering new things every day. Some of these discoveries can be quite dangerous, which helps children, toddlers, and infants to learn the basics of life. Some of these discoveries can include; infants mouthing toys, introducing foods to infants and toddlers, and children playing in indoor or outdoor playgrounds, and/or infants, toddlers learning to walk, run, etc.
These events can lead to injuries including; head injuries (concussion); scrapes, cuts or grazes to knees, elbows etc; asthma attacks; anaphylaxis (Food reaction) or choking.
Some of these events can lead to severe illnesses or death in children if those caring for them are untrained.
