A child is poisoned every 30 second in the United States. Most accidental poisonings occur at home and can be prevented.
A child may think many medications look like candy. Sudafed may look like mini red hots and chocolate laxatives can look like a Hershey Bars. Even household items may be mistaken for every day foods and drinks. A child may think a bottle of alcohol looks like a bottle of water and blue Windex may look like blue Gatorade. Even a box of rat poison pellets sounds like a box of candy when shaken. (The picture shows a board of different medication/candy look-a-likes.)
What can we do to help protect our children?
