review & giveaway: green eats
When Toddler B began to eat solids, we began tackling an issue that many parents face in these days of scary chemicals and toxic materials- what do we feed her with? Plastics scares me, I can never remember what numbers are good and which numbers are bad. We went with ceramics for a bit, but broke every cute little dish.
Green Toys (their tugboat is the best bath toy EVER), had recently added a tableware line for kids, Green Eats. All of Green Eats and Green Toys products are made from recycled milk jugs. The plastic is high-density polyethylene (HDPE), one of the cleanest, safest plastics around. No melamine, no BPA, no phthalates, no PVC, and has no external coatings.
spoons to try- to this day, they are the only spoons that Toddler B will consistently eat from (she has an extremely strong mouth sensitivity). They are just the right size for Baby S's hands and mouth- she loves trying to feed herself!
Green Eats also sent us an assortment of their other tableware products to try- bowls, snack bowls, tumblers, and divided plates. They were barely out of their boxes before the girls decided they loved them. Besides being great dishes, they make great toys! The snack bowls are now a favorite play item for both of them (bonus- they make perfect silly hats. We put them on our heads over and over again for hours). I am okay with them being on the floor- unlike the Dandelion brand of eco-friendly dishes (which break instantly when stepped on), they are sturdy. I can stand on the snack bowls and they don't even buckle.
The verdict? In my opinion, Green Eats make the best baby and toddler eco-friendly tableware currently on the market. Non-toxic, affordable, sturdy, and cute- you can't get much better than that. Thanks Green Eats!
Guess what? One lucky Breastfed reader will win a pack of Green Eats bowls in yellow! Follow the directions on the Rafflecopter to win. Good luck and good eating!
