A common snack many parents give their toddlers every day could be putting them at risk.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says grapes are among the most common cause of choking among kids under the age of five.

Doctors say the smooth skin on grapes make them the "perfect plug" for kids' small airways.  Other dangerous foods include hot dogs and hard candy.
