When can babies have lollipops?

I do not give my babies lollipops for a variety of reasons. Lollipops are a huge choking hazard, especially for babies. I really worry about the sugar in lollipops as well, too much sugar is bad for the body and bad for their teeth. I do not see any benefits in giving my baby a lollipop, I wait until they are about 3yrs old and then they can have an occasional lollipop.
