Eating Out of Silicone!

Right as Andrik was starting to eat solid foods, I wanted to find a company that made eco-friendly, toxic-free feeding and food storage containers.  I grew tired of seeing the slew of plastic products lined up in rows at such stores like Babies R Us.  I wanted to find something not only safe for Andrik to eat out of but something made out of green materials.  And so began my quest.

But I didn't have to look too far, thanks to Amazon.  I did a search for toxic-free containers and one of the products that came up was Kinderville.   Kinderville offers innovative, functional and toxin-free products for babies and toddlers.  With the focus on quality and the use of safe materials, all their products - including feeding and food storage systems, bowls, bottles, sippy cups, utensils, and more - are thoroughly safety-tested and are BPA-, Phthalate- and lead-free.

If it's not plastic then what are Kinderville products made out of?  They are made out of silicone.  After reading the FAQ on their website and the fact that silicone is made from organic materials such as sand, quarts and rock, I figured heck, why not try this product line.  And another fact that silicone is hygienic, hypoallergenic and resistant to bacteria gained more points in my book.  And not only were these products safe and green but they came in really great shades of green, yellow, blue and red. 

After researching Kinderville products, I went a little cursor happy and bought several of their items on Amazon.  I purchased the Little Bites 3.5 oz storage jars which came in 4, the Bigger Bites 10 oz storage jars which came in 2, Little Bites bowls that came in 4, and the Little Bites cups that came in 4.  When I received the products, I couldn't wait to try them out.  And it didn't take too long for me to fall in love with this company.  What I thought was really cool is the tops to the storage containers.  When you align the tops to the bottoms and push down, they do such a great job of sealing shut.  I thought it would be an issue at first but as long as you're not filling the containers with food all the way to the very brim, it seals extremely well!
So yes not only am I happy with this product but they've got a happy customer in Andrik!   I can't wait to buy the Little Bites Ice Pop Molds for when he is bigger and we can make yummy organic popsicles together!  I am also excited to discover that they have Bigger Bites Divided Plates and can't wait to purchase these!

So if you're looking into buying something that isn't plastic and is ecofriendly without having to buy glass, I would highly suggest Kinderville for your babies/toddlers eating needs!
