7 Reasons Why I Spent $186 On My Kids’ Plates, Goodbye Plastic!

Yeah, that's a lot of money. But it's the best investment I've made! I used to buy plastic over and over again—every time it started looking gross. I tried silicone, but it quickly started to taste like soap. But now that I have Ahimsa's stainless steel beauties, I'll never have to buy another kids' dish again!

Kid Dropping Cup

1. They’re durable and will last a lifetime

I feel like my father-in-law when I say this, but… they just don’t make things like they used to. I hate having to throw away broken toys after just a few weeks. It’s one of the main reasons why I spent the money to upgrade to stainless steel dishes. Unlike plastic, silicone, and bamboo, stainless steel can handle anything my kids (or husband) can do to them. This means that our dishes will last for years to come, saving me money in the long run. Plus, Ahimsa has a lifetime warranty, so they’ve got my back on that.

Ahimsa vs. Plastic

2. They’re completely free of any harmful, hormone-damaging chemicals

When I realized I that the plastic and even silicone plates I was using could leach harmful chemicals and/or awkward smells into my kids’ food I was devastated. That was the bad news. The good news is that switching to stainless steel can reverse those effects in as little as three days. I can have peace of mind knowing that my kids’ food won’t have any “extra” ingredients or weird plasticky smells. Yuck.

Is there anything cooler than getting to support another mom on her entrepreneurial journey? Ok, yea maybe a kid-free spa weekend, but you get what I’m saying. Knowing that a pediatrician designed these with our kids’ health as the centerpiece is crucial.

4. The perfect registry gift

Since having Ahimsa dishes in my kitchen, and hearing all the compliments I get when I have other families over for playdates, it dawned on me, these are the PERFECT gift. It’s now automatic that I order a mealtime set for my friends when they welcome a new baby into the world.

Kid Looking At Ahimsa Plate

5. My kids are OBSESSED with the fun colors

My kids LOVE setting the table with their colorful Ahimsa plates, bowls, and cups. The only problem is the rainbow set has become the favorite that gets fought over. They’re so in demand that we have to rotate colors to keep the peace in the kitchen.

6. Join thousands of raving fans

I feel a bit like I’m in the “cool crowd” now with my plates. Whenever we are heading to the park or on a playdate, I always pack a few extra snack bowls and plates. I’ll even admit that I use the purposeful plates to do charcuterie boards when we have adult wine and cheese night.

7. They’re the best option for the environment

Before I had kids, I didn’t think as much about the environment and what we’re leaving for future generations. Now though, as taking out the trash seems like a herculean effort for my husband, due to the cavalcade of Amazon boxes, our reusable stainless steel dishes are one way we can cut down.

Great bowls

These bowls are great. My kids fight over the colors 😂 they are Perfect for cereal portions, snacks or anything really l Wish they sold the 8oz bowl separately from the meal kits and that they had larger cups for bigger kids!!

I bought this set as a gift for my granddaughter. She loves it so much. I love the quality of it. Now that's the only thing she wants her food served in.

2nd set, my son loves using these!

This is our second set. We have the blue one and my son loves it so much that's why we got a second set for us to use at my brother's place. I had used the silicone ones before and it left a soapy taste so we stopped using them and switched over to Ahimsa.
