    Really?? A choking hazard at 2.5?

    I definitely wouldn't give my 2yr old hard lollies at all. Probably not until he's 5ish. We do give him whole grapes tho - is that as bad?

    Id say something yes. I'd mention what you think is ok to give and what's not.

    My ds2 recently gagged on half a grape (he's only 18months) so I think it's better to be safe than sorry.

    I would say something. A grape can be squished to get out..... A boiled Lilly would lodge and get stuck

    I'm not a Helicopter parent, but I would never 'allow' a hard boiled lolly or the like for such a young child. Pushing aside the sugar/empty calorie factor, my main concern would be the risk of choking and lodgement. I also don't allow popcorn for the same reason.

    Happy to have a hard lolly pop if supervised and it obviously has a stick to hold onto, but definitely not the type of the OP is referring to, so if it were my MIL I would reiterate that I would rather her not give said child a hard lolly etc.
