More and more studies are being done on the dangers of plastic. Especially for pregnant woman and children. Articles like this show they are finding BPA-free things are just as bad if not worse. Plastics—especially those used in food containers that end up being heated or washed—often leach chemicals and may do strange things to the body, mimicking and disrupting hormones in ways that haven’t yet been fully understood.
Personally, I don't need to wait for any more evidence. Below are my favorite alternatives we've switched to and I promise you won't miss your plastic at all.
Boon Feeding Spoon
Made from silicone and stainless, both sides are the perfect size for little mouths.
Born Free Glass Bottle
Made of glass with with 3 different sized silicone nipples, these are the best bottles out there and I have now used them for 2 kids.
Duralex Gigogne Glasses
This glass holds up. These cups have been dropped on the floor a few times and they didn't shatter.
These are great if you're nervous giving your kids glass.
Glass on the inside and a silicone sleeve on the outside. Again, this has been dropped and it stayed in one piece.
Eco Vessel Stainless Steel Water Bottle
The best straw cup and it never leaks as an added bonus.
Thermos Foogo Stainless Steel Straw Bottle
Another great straw cup choice. Better for littler ones.
Lifefactory Glass Bottle
My favorite water bottles for the kids and myself. They come in a variety of colors and sizes.
Oneida Paul Revere 3-Piece Child Set
Made of stainless and looks so much cuter at the table.
Duralex Lys Clear Plate
LIke the duralex cups, this holds up and is the perfect size for the kids.
Duralex Lys Clear Bowl
Looks great with the cups and plates. We use them for fruit and snacks.
Kinderville Silicone Bowls
If your child is still throwing things off the table or highchair these are perfect.
I am obsessed with these jars. I use them for baby food, leftovers, granola, dry ingredients, anything. And I love the way they look.
Kinderville Little Bites Ice Pop Molds
This is a much better idea than the plastic ones that you have to run under hot water to get the popsicle out. My kids love them.
