Created by a pediatrician mom
Developed by a board-certified pediatrician mom, Ahimsa was created when the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released a report in 2018 discussing ways families can limit exposure to certain chemicals at mealtime.
No plastic, no way
Our products were designed with safety in mind. 100% metal. No additional chemicals or paint. Our coloring process allows metal to change its properties to produce rainbows. We think science is cool!
Durable and lasting
Our products won't stain from that spaghetti sauce, hold on to food odors, or take forever to dry like plastic. Plus, since our products are meant to last, you can use Ahimsa at ages 1, 8 and 18!
That's our nesting spoon in Rachael Ray's mouth! We're still pinching ourselves!
"Ahimsa is actually the world’s first colorful stainless dinnerware for kids and it is based in Indiana"
"A local pediatrician is changing the children’s dinnerware game with her stainless steel brand, Ahimsa."
Did you know our infant nesting spoon is patent pending?
It was designed to easily rest in the bowl without falling out during feedings. This helps to prevent messy cross-contamination with other surfaces.
But it doesn't stop there
When your baby outgrows it, you can continue to use it as a stirring spoon!
Oh and one more thing...
Yep, that's Rachael Ray holding our nesting spoon...in her mouth!

All my little grands received their own Ahimsa sets as gifts. I wanted to make sure that meals at Gigi and Boss's were just as colorful and safe as those at home. Clean-up is super easy, and it's impossible not to smile watching them enjoy their food on such happy plates. Eat healthy, smile more, take care of Mother Earth :-) Thank you, Ahimsa!
One of my favorite things about the plates (beyond the fun color and environmental aspects, of course!😉) are how the wells are deep enough to hold sauces (and we love our sauce!)...which means, also hold in the MESS! We usually make this mirin & soy glazed salmon and pour the glaze over the top and it goes everywhere on the kids plates and eventually it’s splashed out on the table and a sticky mess is inevitable but NOT with Ahimsa plates! 🙌🏻 All the sauce stays contained within the deep well and keeps the food really flavorful and delicious and the table clean! I’ve noticed the same with pancakes with syrup, spaghetti & meatballs with sauce and all saucy foods! LOVE IT! Thanks soo much!!! 🙌🏻💛🤩
I’ve wanted to switch to stainless steel for sometime especially after the AAP warned parents to do away with plastic in the kitchen for kids’ health. We also are trying to live a greener lifestyle. When I first saw these I fell in love. My boys were so excited to get the blue iridescent! They are timeless because they work for my one yr old and I can see them lasting many, many years as they don’t look like they are meant for any specific age. Other stainless steel kids’ dinnerware doesn’t touch these. Love that they are dishwasher safe. The customer service is wonderful too for this company too! A great investment for our children!
These adorable sets have become my first choice for baby showers now. We also used to give our children and grandchildren open cups at a young age so this feels just right! We didn't use sippy cups. Also, this spoon is brilliant - only wish I had it when our kids were little. The tiny end is so perfect for feeding babies little mouths and it doesn't tip the bowl over when I put it down to wipe baby off in between bites. Great products and even more beautiful in person. Biggest hit of every baby shower!
I love Ahimsa products because I know there are no dangerous chemicals that can leach out like in plastic. Knowing that they are safe for my grandkids to eat off and what we grandmas are used to from our generation, makes me feel great! I'm going to have to buy more since they only want Ahimsa on the table now - constant fighting over rainbow and blues! They are so easy to clean but having multiple sets makes visits to Grandma's house even better. Great Job Ahimsa! We are so proud of you for providing such safe products for our kids and for our Mother Earth.
We are so happy to have a beautiful and well made alternative to plastics! The dinnerware is durable, easy to clean, and I love that you can use it beyond childhood. We parents use the bowls sometimes. The dinnerware helps us keep our portions to a reasonable size!
I gifted this to a friend for her baby shower , and she absolutely loves it! I Love that the products are safe for our children and also the environment. Not to mention, so pretty! My new go-to gift!
My kids have outgrown their partitioned plates, I wish these were around 5 years ago! I want to order some sets anyway just for snacks!
Love these bowls! Great quality and they are the first bowls I reach for when making a snack for my son. And even myself! Highly recommend!
I have gifted this to all of my friends that are expecting little ones soon and they have absolutely LOVED it. It’s beautifully designed, unique, safe, and fun for the kids!
My 3 boys love their classic stainless steel sets and I love that they are not plastic! Easy to care for - I put everything in the dishwasher. Classic and clean design!
Thanks from one pediatrician mom to another! Our kids love the rainbow plates and they stand up to the rough wear and tear and foster healthy eating.
We use these sets daily. They are durable and we put them anywhere in the dishwasher to good results. The kids love the compartments to keep food or condiments from “touching”. I actually really like the cups for myself and find myself reaching for them on weekend mornings for small cups of tea or juice. Love that they are void of all plastics.
We used the bowls last night for dinner with friends and not only did it look SO nice to have 4 kids at the table eating out of the same bowl, but the food stayed warmer than the other plastic bowls we were using and they were so easy to clean! Came out of the dishwasher spotless! I recycled a bunch of our old bowls. I was so happy to see them go! Ahimsa for the win!
Knowing these dishes are better for the environment AND for my kids is win win! Our dishes are extremely easy to clean by hand or using the dish washer and my two year old loves having separate, deep compartments for different foods. Extremely satisfied with our purchase!
I got rid of the scratchy, film covered plastic plates after getting the blue sectioned plate set from ahimsa. It’s really pretty and my son loves seeing himself in the bottom of the empty cup! Great gift idea for those trying to avoid harmful chemicals found in so many kid products.
Our kiddos were so excited about their Valentine's day gifts❤ not only are they easy to clean, functional, and better for all, but my daughter says "they are so pretty"!!! We have always been super strict about what our kiddos eat, but not so much with what they are eating the healthy food on. We are thrilled with our purchase and can not wait to use the nesting spoon with our youngest. We will be purchasing many more in the future.
I love the separate compartments! This feature allows me to add more variety to each meal, and to better gauge how much of each type of food the kids are eating. Clean up is also easy since they are dishwasher safe!
Awesome products top to bottom. We bought a set of 6 in anticipation of a growing family and to accommodate friends coming over to eat. My 4-year old now uses her rainbow plate, cup, spoon and fork for every meal at home. Loved these so much that we bought them as gifts for multiple people and even convinced my parents to buy them for people they knew. The partitions actually cause my daughter to actively think about ways to fill each section with something different and colorful to match! Bowls are perfectly sized and love the perfect balance between durability and lightness of the spoon and fork.
We ordered 4 sets for the home and 3 as gifts as soon as we learned about Ahimsa. Our daughter (age 4) LOVES using them for every meal and has now rejected all other plates and utensils that we have. 😊 As a mom, I am excited about not having to have a power struggle about what plate to use for the next meal! It’s been really fun introducing them to friends when they come over and I love having an easy go-to gift for kids. I appreciate how durable and easy to clean all the pieces are too. Thank you, Ahimsa!!
I never knew that stainless steel could enhance the flavor of food. I am preparing healthier food for my grandson and he loves it! This product is definitely a win, win, win!! Taste enhancing, better for the environment and BPA free!
I could not love these bowls more! Not only are they practical and the perfect size for my kids (and me), they are beautiful. I have gotten so many compliments on them. They look like new every time they come out of the dishwasher. I know these will last a lifetime, and then some.
We use these all the time. Kids love the compartments and the rainbow color is fun. And we feel good not using plastic. Would highly recommend!
Stainless steel for babies, can’t ask for a fancier bowl and spoon (rainbow set) for my 8 month old. Loved the spoon all the more as it is the only spoon I use that actually fits into my babies mouth with ease #saynotoplastic
I am obsessed with the rainbow bowls! They are absolutely perfect for snacks, soups, dips, and feeding babies. Definitely a product for all ages that can grow with your child. I even use them for my own snacks, too!
We got a couple of sets for our kids (5, 2, and 1). The plates are perfect - deep pockets make them usable and keep the food items separated while the kids eat (which they love). They are the perfect size, super easy to clean (especially since we can pop them in the dishwasher which we stopped doing with our plastics). The bowls are sleek and deeper than you would think despite their compact size. We don’t have to worry about the kids breaking them. They will last forever and the kids just love how “fancy” they look. Highly recommend for families with kids of all ages!
I bought 6 of the rainbow kids sets! My kids LOVE these and will only eat with their “rainbow” cups, bowls, plates, and silverware now. They no longer use any plastic which makes me feel great as a mom and as a pediatrician (knowing all of the dangers of plastics). They keep hot food hot and cold food cold. I don’t have to worry about my kids breaking them if they drop one. They are also easy to clean ... I often just do a quick rinse and let them air dry so they’re ready for the next meal of the day. Highly recommend these and we will buy more down the road 🙌🏻
Was so excited to send this new product as a baby shower gift. Very disappointed to be notified over a month later that no gift message was included and recipient had no idea who sent the gift. Execution of the mailing needs improved. My excitement of giving this as a gift waned.
Love the dish set! Easy to clean and my 3 year old daughter loves to pick which food can go in what compartment. Also perfect for snack time since I can serve multiple items on the same dish. The set is so easy to hand wash and dries super fast in the dish rack. Comes out clean in the dishwasher with minimal water spots.
These are perfect and exactly as described! My kids are so excited to help get meals ready and to eat :)
These products are amazing! I can’t say enough good things! My son loves to eat from the dishes and gets excited to drink from the cups! Also great customer service.
I purchased this set in conjunction with the infant/toddler set and absolutely love this one! The color is so vibrant and my son who is five absolutely loves it. He will no longer eat with anything else that I give him! He feels really special with this new dishware he gets to eat from. He even is trying new foods which is a huge bonus! I highly recommend these products, and will certainly be getting more!
My daughter just turned two, and absolutely love the vibrant rainbow color. She loves to use her own spoon and is learning how to drink out of her own cup now! Every time I give her the bowl or cup or spoon, she is so excited. I love how shiny, durable and easy these are to clean! Great products I can’t wait to get her the next set when she gets a little bit older!
Yaaaaasssss!!! Thank you for developing this product. For a long time, I searched for a safe alternative to plastic. The dishes I had for my kids stained and held odors, yuk! I wanted stainless, but my searches came up empty! Your product is awesome and my family loves it.
We love our children's set. Our littlest one uses this almost nightly and the slightly raised sides on the plate are great. We wash it in the dishwasher and have not had any issues with it!
