I wish people would STOP FEEDING TODDLERS HOT DOGS. The fact that this little girl lost her life needlessly makes me sick!
Pediatricians are calling for a choke-proof hot dog that's redesigned so their size, shape and texture won't lodge in a child's throat.
Hedy Palliardi has invented Flat Dogs, which are (surprise!) a flat hot dog. They're only available in Connecticut right now, but I hope that soon they will be available nationwide, so other kids like Anna don't have to lose their lives.
Until Flat Dogs are available everywhere, cut toddlers' hot dogs into quarter-sized pieces -- or don't give them hot dogs at all.
