I would first suggest, as Shawnn said, a child safety lock. This will work for most kids. However, in the past few months I personally have gone through four or five of them of them and my kids (4 and 2.5 yo boys) just kept breaking them. (They are FREAKISHLY strong!) I have given up since they are about $10 per 2 pack and I don't want to keep paying for something that isn't effective for us. Now I am just super vigilant about watching them, keeping lids screwed on tight, and telling them "No" every time while physically removing them immediately. They are actually getting much better about it after continuously being stopped. There are always going to be times you can't watch though, like when you're doing laundry, using the bathroom, etc., so if you have things in your fridge that would be dangerous like open alcohol or foods they are allergic to, I would first try the child lock and if your kid is crazy strong enough to break through it you could always resort to running a chain around the fridge with a padlock. That's pretty extreme, but I have seen people do it! :)

Look at your local store, in the babies/toddlers area. They should have a lock for your fridge.
