Everyone knows about Ring Pops, right?? We all had them as a kid. Even though I’m no longer a kid I still love Ring Pops and when I was asked if I wanted to help introduce everyone to the new sugar-free ring pop I couldn’t say no!
Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat. I do not give my child suckers, lollipops or any sort of hard candy because he only just turned 2 yrs old and I am very aware that suckers are one of the leading causes of choking in children. Sometimes people look at me strange when I tell them my son can’t have a sucker, but it’s just something I don’t take a chance on right now.
Why I’ll Allow Ring Pops But Not Suckers
I was a little hesitant to give him the ring pop but there were a few important factors that allowed me to say yes. The pop is attached to the ring with far less chance of the whole thing going down his throat at once. As long as he only thinks he is supposed to suck on it and he is not taught to chew it, that’s all he will do, which is a big thing with me. I don’t want him biting off a huge piece and maybe choking. I also made sure he was supervised the whole time. Last but not least, the fact that it’s sugar free means that it can be a treat he receives occasionally and I don’t have to worry about cavities or having a hyper kid jumping all over the house.
Needless to say he was incredibly compliant. He only licked the pop and he kept it on his finger where it was placed. He sat on the couch quietly until the whole thing was gone. Woo hoo. You have no idea how rare that is lol. In my eyes, sugar free ring pops are a keeper and I hope my son will have the same fond memories of them as I do when he gets to be my age.
By the way, Mom loved the new Sugar-free ring pops too 😉 I really couldn’t taste the difference.
