When it comes to our son, the Hubby and I really try to avoid plastics. We choose to go for quality materials that are durable and safe for him. Recently, I swapped out all of the remaining plastics bowls and plates we occasionally used for him. Y now only has bamboo, stainless steel, and whatever ‘normal’ plates we use for ourselves.
I do have one note – we waited to buy bamboo plates until Y no longer dropped things from his high chair as much because these can break. The items I include in this round up are a bit pricier than ‘normal’, plastic materials. For us, we started by swapping out plastic for stainless steal and then after I was fairly confident that bamboo plates would survive in our home, I finalllllyy purchased some items.
We picked out a few, high quality items that seemed particularly useful and practical for our family. I am so happy them and want to share the items that we have been loving, as well as a few items on my ‘to buy’ list!
We love our Klean Kanteen cup! It has a cover for the part that the child drinks from. I like that this prevents leaks, but also keeps the drink part a bit hygienically clean. All parts are also dishwasher safe! You can also swap the ‘sippy cup’ top for a different one as your child gets older.
These silicone straws make sipping on water, smoothies, milk or what have you just a tad more fun! They’re colourful and can be taken apart for easy cleaning!
These stainless steel straws are also non-plastic and reusable!
This stainless steel cup has handles for younger babes! Perfect for snack time or even a soup!
A glass bottle is something on my list of future purchases. There are protective layers around the glass itself and it should be okay.
Another great stainless steel option!
I love our Biobu bamboo plates. We recently purchased this set in lime green and it’s wonderful! I love that the plate is not completely flat, but has a higher edge. This makes scooping a lot easier for kids that are just starting to use utensils!
I simply love these colorful stainless steel bowls! These bowls are so useful for serving snacks or small portions. Stainless steel is a great option for snack time because it won’t break like bamboo or glass or ceramic can. Also, the colours are so bright and fun!
This bambu bowl is perfect for little ones!
A stainless steel tray is also very easy and can handle a fall or ten!
Eco Bamboo has adorable animal themed sets! I love this whale theme!
If the animal theme above is a bit too much, checkout this too cute bunny plate!
On the go
These round, mini containers are made from stainless steel and are great for taking snacks on the go!
In the fridge
I really like to use glass containers like this glass jar with a lid for storing leftovers. What I love about this one s that the lid is not plastic. I prefer not to use these during meals but only for leftovers. Y still occasionally drops things.
These glass containersdo have a plastic lid but these are freezer and microwave safe.
