The Early Years Foundation Stage statutory framework requires providers to ensure they take all reasonable steps to ensure staff and children in their care are not exposed to risks and  must be able to demonstrate how they are managing risks. Guidance about the importance of risk assessment for activities involving food – including raw jelly cubes which is a potential choking hazard – can be found in A Manager’s Guide to Paediatric First Aid Training on the National Day Nurseries Association’s website. Providers may wish to be aware that ‘NHS choices’ has now included warnings about raw jelly cubes on its pages for Baby and toddler safety and Foods to avoid giving your baby.
