I'd advise it's better to start with toe stops. Gives confidence and an alternate way to stop, can also be used to recover balance.

There are some schools of thought you can learn bad habits with a toe stop, and maybe you do but when I started I wanted that security for both forward and backward stopping, bit of balance aiding. As you get better you move the stopper closer to the boot then decide whether to swap for a jam plug (depends on the skating, I'm aiming for toe jumps so will need the toe stop).
