Is popping corn suitable for children?
Popping corn is great for older children, but it is not recommended for infants or toddlers, as the popped kernels can pose a choking hazard.
It is perfectly normal for some of the kernels not to pop, but please make sure that your little ones don't eat them as they could damage their teeth and they don't taste very nice! Any un-popped kernels should be thrown away.
Don't try to re-heat the un-popped kernels or reuse the bag.
What makes popping corn pop?
Steam! The kernels contain moisture: when they are heated the moisture becomes steam and builds up pressure as the internal environment expands, eventually a small explosion occurs as they burst their shell and are popped – magic!
