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:
CREATE SAFE PRODUCTS
Our high-quality, food-grade 304 18/8 colorful stainless steel is free of BPA (& all bisphenols), PVC, phthalates, melamine and lead.
EDUCATE OUR FAMILIES
Our pediatricians provide tips and simple tools for healthy eating and your child’s overall well-being.
ADVOCATE FOR OTHERS
We strive to protect our planet, fight childhood food-insecurity and promote policy that protects human health.
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.
Love our Ahimsa sets! Our toddler loves using them. The partitioned plate makes it easy to portion out meals. The dishes and cups are high quality with beautiful color options, and I can feel confident knowing that they are a healthy choice for my family! Will definitely recommend to friends and family!
The child and adults have enjoyed every piece and every color option.
We really liked the bowls and I think my daughter likes having “her” bowls and plates. Very easy to use and to wash.
Love that they stack, are machine washable, and get the kids interested in mealtime because of the pretty colors!
I saw this product a year ago and kept putting off the purchase due to the price. I finally bit the bullet when my 2 year old wanted to eat with plates and utensils like we do every day. I wish I bought them sooner! The set is beautiful and so fun, it washes so easily in the dishwasher, the utensils are the perfect size (bigger than most toddler utensils) and we all love using them every chance we can!! The peace of mind that we aren’t putting hot food on plastic is an added bonus for us. Really can’t recommend this enough! It will be my future gift to any 1 year old party we attend!
I had been looking for something like this for a year or so now. I grew up eating on stainless steel plates in India, for me, it was not only nostalgia but knowing the benefits of not using plastic that found me exploring Ahimsas website. The colored titanium raised some questions in my mind but I did some research which eventually convinced my husband who was worried about the “color leeching into the food”. My 3 year old took to it instantly. I love the glass and bowl the most. It’s perfect for his hands size. I’m getting a set for Christmas for my nephews and nieces.
I've been meaning to leave a review but I have had Ahimsa sets for my little one as she started solids at 6 months. She was drinking out of this open cup very quickly after introducing it. She loves the sensation and bright colors - it has made transitioning to the Mindful Mealtime set SO easy. Now, uses bigger cup and utensils with ease! They also look exactly the same despite daily dishwasher use. They are the only dishes we use. As a physician mom myself, I feel great about the safety profile of these products - especially over the disgusting plastic that's affecting health and our environment. It's now my go-to baby shower gift!
Better for my kids AND the environment. Makes me so happy
We adore our Ahimsa dishware!! My daughter is actually inspired to eat more variety when she eats off the gorgeous compartmentalized dish 👍🏼👍🏼 Also, at least ten friends -land acquaintances have bought some Ahimsa dishware after seeing ours!
Great set for my toddler. My 17 month old loves using the fork and spoon and plates !!
My daughter loved the glasses and the bowls. These are beautiful gift options too!
These bowls are a lovely shape and a useful size.
AND I gave one to my glass mosaic artist daughter to use as a mold for glass in her kiln!
Great cups plates and bowls! Kids love them.
I’m also a Pediatrician and know how important it is to avoid the use of plastics that can leach chemicals into our food so I was so happy to heard about these. Just got these plates a few days ago and we LOOOOOVE them! the blue is so vibrant and makes me so happy. I got a set of 4 plates, bowls and cups for the whole family. My kids, husband and I can use them too! I love how vibrant they are. These was a very minor scratch and I got replacements immediately, the customer service team was amazing. A++++ love these and will be gifting it in the future!
Best plates ever - we have 4 and when all are in the dishwasher at dinner time, we are sad. The bowls are a bit small for us now as the kids get bigger, but the plates are timeless, high quality, and beautiful. Love them!
