Here’s what Hitha has to say about her Ahimsa experience:
"When I’m a mom, I’m NEVER doing that with my kids!”
If I had a dollar for every time I said that to my mom as a kid and did exactly what she did when I became a mother…
Mom always made sure I ate and drank from stainless steel plates, flatware, and cups.
I thought it was just an Indian thing (and it certainly is). But it’s one of the safest choices you can make for your children.
Many of us know about the issues with plastic. Stainless steel is the GOAT in our household, our parents’, and the generations that came before ours. It lasts forever (the plates in my parents home are older than I am), they resist odors completely, and they're dishwasher safe and can be used in the toaster oven.
Sri and I use the plates and cups we’ve squirreled from my parents’ house. For the kids, we have a few sets of @ahimsahomeusa’s plates, bowls, flatware, and cups. And they LOVE them.
Serving my kids their meals on these plate settings gives me peace of mind as a parent. Setting their table the night before saves me my precious sanity every morning (yet another tip I’ve learned from my mother).
