After visiting various local cafes/ restaurants but also nationwide food outlets to buy my young children their lunch and/ or desert i’ve found very few who serve grapes that have been halved. 

The latest research shows that a grape is the perfect size to lodge in a child’s throat and can choke them (unfortunately too many cases in which this has proved fatal). 

I have been to one too many child friendly places (swimming pool cafes, fast food outlets, chain restaurants) that have had grapes on their kids menu but are served whole.

Although there are many parents who would halve the whole grapes themselves there are lots of adults who still don’t know the danger and wouldn’t halve the grapes so won’t be eliminating the danger.

This petition is to raise awareness and address the issue of food establishments offering grapes on a kids menu but not offering them halved therefore not a kid friendly option. Ultimately hoping to make it an industry standard that grapes should be halved when offered and sold to kids.
