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?
Ok I was just curious. I have on the odd occasion given ds1 hard lollies from about two onwards.

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.
Nope I am constantly arguing with mil over this and chewing gum!
On a stick whatever but just a boiled lollie nope not all.
I would say something again and make it very clear your not comfortable with it
I choked on a hard lolly as a teenager So that's definitely a no from me.
