It’s important to bring safe, sustainable, eco-friendly products into your home. This is true no matter what kind of family you have, but it becomes even more essential when you have a baby in the house. Sustainable products keep your baby safe from harmful materials like plastics—a particularly important feature in the kitchen. They’re also great for the environment, which means you don’t have to feel guilty once your baby outgrows all the furniture and supplies you bought them. Are you ready to make your home healthy and hospitable for your baby? Check out these sustainable baby products you need for your kitchen.
You probably don’t think twice about the forks and spoons you use every day, but choosing baby utensils is a major decision. Sustainable materials like bamboo are perfect for utensils at any age, but you also need something made for little hands that are still learning basic motor skills. Look for short handles and a lightweight design to make things easier for your baby. Finally, you want a utensil that’s soft enough for your baby’s delicate mouth. That’s why we like silicone-tipped forks and spoons for little ones.
Mealtimes get messy with little ones, but dishes with suction cup bases can make things a little easier. Suction cup bowls stick to the table or tray so that excited, waving hands can’t accidentally knock their food over. Suction cup plates also come with handy compartments to separate foods. Like all baby dishware, look for sustainable and safe materials like bamboo, stainless steel, and silicone. These materials are free of phthalates, plastics, and lead, making them a safe and healthy way to serve your baby food.
You and your baby don’t have to settle for cheap plastic high chairs. Instead, invest in an adjustable and sustainable wooden chair. In addition to being a durable material, wood with a nontoxic finish is a safe and healthy material for your baby to feel comfortable in. The durability means you can resell or gift the high chair after your baby’s done with it, which means you don’t have to doom the product to a landfill. It’s also worth mentioning that a well-made wooden chair will look much better in your kitchen than plastic alternatives.
Make mealtimes safe, healthy, and easier for everyone when you invest in these and other sustainable baby products you need for your kitchen. With a little effort and care, you can make sure your baby grows up around products that are good for them and the world they live in.
