SinceMarch is Brain Injury Awareness Month, and since the Buggie Huggie shopping cart tray was designed to help prevent traumatic brain injuries in children. We wanted to offer some simple ideas for helping your kids celebrate all kinds of “different abilities” in people...
My son Jonah was the victim of a shopping cart injury.
Once I really started researching, I was shocked to learn that the US doesn’t even have mandatory shopping cart safety guidelines (although some other countries do).This is why so many carts don’t have the safety belts in the kids’ seat -- each individual store chooses whether or not that is a priority.
In fact, over 24,000 kids go to the ER in the US every year for a shopping cart fall -- 75% of those are head injuries.
