Why stainless steel?
In 2018, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a policy statement (“Food Additives and Child Health”), recommending the use of alternatives to plastic, like glass or stainless steel.Shop Now
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 are 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!
Our other products grow with your children, too.
From little learners to decision-makers, Ahimsa products were built with intention. The compartments and fitted bowl are perfect for picky eaters, and as children grow, our products promote healthy portions and variety.
Oh and one more thing...
Yep, that's Rachael Ray with our Founder!
I have 4 kids, I have always been careful with the BPA plastic. By far these are my favorite. I wish these were out when my oldest was borne. I’m a nurse and safety is always first in our house. These are great, easy to put in the dishwasher, and my daughter loves the rainbow set.
The colors are so rich and attractive on these plates. They are so durable and easy to clean compared to the plastic dishes we had. My only regret is not buying them sooner.
My twins love their special dishes!
I bought two of this lovely set for twin granddaughters on the way. Their parents love these stunning dishes, especially for their uniqueness. Thank you for creating a new family heirloom!
These cute bowls are great for snacks, fruit, ice cream, etc. They stack unbelievably well and are easy to clean. I love that they will last forever and are great for the environment. I was really impressed with the ease of ordering and service that came along with this product. I will definitely buy more products like this in the future!
Easy to clean! Very cute looking. My little one is very excited about the rainbow color. Glad I’m not using plastic bowls/ plates anymore.
The kids love them and so do I! They are worth the investment, I cant wait to ditch more of our old plastic plates and replace them with these. They are durable, easy to clean and fun!
I’m a fellow MD and am always thrilled to support a company by another Mom MD — especially one who’s looking out for the health and well-being of our children. I’m excited to ditch the plastic for them, what a great product. I’ve already told others about your products. Keep up the good work. They are a fun and practical way to continue to teach young children environmental awareness in their everyday lives.
I bought one for my grandson and we all love it! It's so colorful and the spoon is a genius idea! He loves drinking out of the cup, which is the perfect size! This is great to give as a baby shower gift and for anyone you know who has younger kids. This is for the future of our children and grandchildren...No more plastic!
I grew up on stainless like this so seeing it available online makes me SO happy! My kids had the character plates made of plastic but I’m constantly replacing them because they are warped, stained, or melting. Gross. Now I feel great that I can now serve my kids with something safe. I have two sets for each of my three kids and it’s been all we are using now. My little one loves her reflection as she is drinking! The older kids are now requesting to fill up each space so I have to be a bit more proactive in my meal planning! Thanks for this Ahimsa - I feel better about what I am serving my kids now and what I’m serving it in!!!
I have a 10 year old that really enjoys using her blue Ahimsa set! They’re great for portion control! We love that Ahimsa is better for the environment and is offered in such a gorgeous and timeless array of colors. This quality family product is unmatched. They also make great gifts!! ☺️
Dzia Dzia is Grandfather in Polish. We all need to embrace the best traits each of our cultures have to offer. Thank you Dr Manasa for bringing this healthy and wonderful cultural trait to us; Ahimsa! How odd to think of all the years I served my loved ones lunch and dinner on plastic, chemically made dishes! Ugh! These are not just healthy dinner ware - these are beautiful items that the kids jealously protect! I bought the rainbow set for my granddaughters, the blue set for my grandsons. I had sets delivered to each of their homes in Indiana and Virginia. Easy! I have sets at my house and also at our second home. And the kids know that the Ahimsa sets came from Dzia Dzia! You're making ME look good!
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.
