The correct answer to this question is. Yes, kids have hiccups. No matter what age, a person can have hiccups, even babies. This is why parents are always taught to pat their backs so that they can burp. Releasing this burp after eating can prevent hiccups.
As they grow older, they no longer need to be patted on the back because they can release the burp just by sitting up. Kids are also taught not to rush their food and to allow the food to digest to prevent hiccups from occurring.
