Giving Tuesday: Join Ahimsa's Fight Against Food Insecurity

Giving Tuesday: Join Ahimsa's Fight Against Food Insecurity

Ahimsa’s primary mission is to get healthy food to ALL children. We understand that for many families, plates don’t matter if there’s nothing to put on them. This is why we have teamed up with The Patachou Foundation – to get plastic OFF the table and healthy food ON it! 

Just last month the American Academy of Pediatrics published a study in the journal Pediatrics regarding the longterm, negative health effects food insecurity has on children.

The Patachou Foundation and Ahimsa Partnership

According to the AAP, in 2017 around 15-million households in the U.S. were food insecure – meaning those families lacked “enough food for an active, healthy life.” Where food insecurity has improved over that last ten years, the AAP says “current levels are as high or higher than at any point in the ten years before the Great Recession.”    

The study finds that “household food insecurity was related to significantly worse general health, some acute and chronic health problems, and worse healthcare access”. Since childhood food insecurity is an important public health problem, we want to help. 

Along with joining The Patachou Foundation to promote “The Kids Table,” Ahimsa has added a direct way you can donate to the foundation as you checkout on our website. If you’ve been waiting to buy your sets, today would be the perfect time as you’ll be receiving something safe, non-toxic and sustainable for your family while also helping eradicate food insecurity one table at a time. If you’d prefer, you can also simply donate directly by clicking here. 

No child should be without access to healthy food. As Mahatma Gandhi famously said, “In a gentle way, we can shake the world.” Please join us in helping the Patachou Foundation address this important issue for kids in our own community.

Beautiful!

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!

Perfect gift!

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!

Thank you for the kind review, Kristin! We are so thrilled you've chosen Ahimsa for your gifts!!! Although the USDA recommends a healthy variety of foods at any age (which our modular system promotes) we are hearing some requests for non-compartment plates. We are listening and have something up our sleeves for those who prefer non compartments! Please keep your feedback coming - we love hearing what customers want whether its new products or colors! Happy, healthy eating! Manasa
So fun!

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!

In LOVE🥰🌈

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.

Perfect!

These are perfect and exactly as described! My kids are so excited to help get meals ready and to eat :)
