Exploring the Best and Safest Non-Toxic Cups and Water Bottles for Kids
At Nature Kids Co., we understand the importance of providing your little ones with the safest and most eco-friendly products. Just like our commitment to non-toxic baby bottles, we believe that choosing the right cups and water bottles for your kids is a crucial part of creating a healthy and sustainable environment. In this article, we'll delve into the world of non-toxic kids' cups, exploring why they matter and introducing you to some of the best options available.
Why Non-Toxic Cups Matter:
Children are naturally curious, and as parents, we want to create a space where they can explore and learn without unnecessary exposure to harmful chemicals. Non-toxic cups play a vital role in promoting a healthy lifestyle for your kids. By opting for cups free from harmful substances like BPA, phthalates, and other toxins commonly found in plastics, you are making a conscious choice to protect your child's well-being and the environment, avoiding these chemicals getting ingested by your child.
Our number 1 recommended material for kids' non-toxic drinking cups is stainless steel! Why?
Stainless steel is a preferred material for non-toxic kids' cups due to its durability and resistance to corrosion. It is free from harmful chemicals and provides a safe alternative to plastic. Stainless steel cups are also known for their ability to maintain the temperature of both hot and cold beverages, making them versatile for various drink options, and they are incredibly durable. Need more specific reasons?
- Stainless steel is the most highly recommended material for kids dinnerware and drinkware by the American Academy of Pediatrics
- Food-grade 304 stainless steel is free of BPA, PVC, phthalates, melamine and lead, and the rest of the nasty stuff
- Completely non-breakable, most durable out of all dinnerware materials (buy it once and it can last for generations)
- Very environmentally friendly due to high durability and recyclability
- Easy clean-up (dishwasher safe)

The Purity of Glass
Glass is another safe material for kids' cups and water bottles. Glass doesn't leach chemicals at any temperature. It is also endlessly recyclable. The drawbacks of glass baby bottles are breakability and heavier weight. If you can live with these drawbacks, glass bottles are a good safe choice for feeding babies.
