Should choke-risk foods be banned from early childhood centres?

The team Reporter from Taupō Times

The Ministry of Education is considering a ban on choke-risk foods including sausages, chips and popcorn in early childhood centres.

It's said that under-fives are at higher risk of choking because they have small air and food passages and are still learning how to chew food.

What do you think? Should choke-risk foods be banned?
