Benefits of Blackstrap Molasses?

Is it safe to give my 3 year old son Blackstrap Molasses?  What are the benefits?

It is a source of iron, however, it is a form of sugar. It should be used sparely, like any sugar with children, and can be substituted for maple syrup at breakfast on pancakes or waffles. Food sources of iron that are healthier are leafy green vegetables, green peppers, all lean meats, and beans.
Thank you for your question.
