Pediatrician-mom designed stainless steel dishes for kids.
Stainless steel is safer, won't break & dishwasher safe
Chemicals in plastic like melamine, bisphenols and phthalates are harmful to a child's hormones, growth and brain development. That's why a pediatrician mom created a safe and practical solution. It won’t stain or retain soapy tastes or a chemical smell like silicone. It won’t break like bamboo. And it won’t peel like other steel coatings. Plus, it’s dishwasher safe!
Ahimsa means avoiding harm and universal love
Guided by this
underlying love, we:

In 2018 the AAP published that chemicals in plastic can interfere with a child’s hormones, growth and brain development. Dr. Manasa Mantravadi, mom to 3 young children, member of the American Academy of Pediatrics Council on Environmental Health and an Indian immigrant who grew up using stainless steel at the dining table – saw that there were limited safe, practical dinnerware options for parents. And so, Ahimsa was born - a perfect mix of her love for children, background in medicine and Indian heritage.

1 in 4 children faces food insecurity. Ahimsa aims to get plastic OFF the table but knows it's more important to get healthy food ON the table.
I bought one set of bowls for my neighbor’s toddler & one set…for me! I love them and use them as snack bowls. Now they keep disappearing because my hubby keeps grabbing them & taking them into other rooms in the house ;)
i'm glad we are giving these a try. the kids like them so far
Was looking for something other than plastic, and these are great! Going to order more
I grew up eating on stainless steel and I love that I can do the same for my kids.
They wash beautifully in the dishwasher and change color! They are awesome
Bought the set that came with a plate cup bowl . Knife and fork. Washes well in the dishwasher
It’s nice to have sturdy, nontoxic meal sets for our littles. They are sturdy and good quality. The price point is high, but we are satisfied with the product.
Mindful Mealtime Set
Where have these been the past 6 years?! They are perfect for my 6 and 3 year old. Not only are they safe and healthy - but they clean so easily. No more crusted guacamole or melted cheese stuck to the plates. 5 stars!
I am beyond impressed with the quality and functionality of the mindful mealtime set. My kids love it, and I enjoy knowing they are using colorful, safe, and age-appropriate plates, silverware, and cups!
Mindful Mealtime Set
Love it. Wonderful products. High quality and beautiful! Love love love it.
I bought these plates for my children, and I unwrapped them on Christmas morning as a gift for myself knowing my boys will be eating cleaner in the year 2022! Thank you, Manasa, for bringing light to the yucky plastics I have been all too dependent on! Not only are they the best, safest choice for my family, they are TRULY beautiful!!!
I can’t stop adding to my collection. The rainbow makes me so happy and makes meals fun for my kids too!
Granddaughter (4) really loved it and started using it immediately.
