MEDICINE MEETS MOTHERHOOD

Ahimsa’s mission is simple—to provide safe products so that families can focus more on mealtime.

Hi! My name is Manasa - I am a Pediatrician, mom of three young kids and an Indian Immigrant.

When I first introduced solids to my twins, I fed them from plastic bowls and with plastic spoons. My mother was horrified by this as she had concerns about the chemicals in plastic transferring into her grandchildren’s food. So one day, while I was at work, she replaced all of my plastic with traditional Indian stainless steel. I, like many Indians, grew up eating and drinking with steel plates and cups at our family dining table.

5 years later, The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) warned parents about plastic's harmful effect on children's hormones, growth and development.


As a Pediatrician I had access to the knowledge and as an Indian Immigrant I had the solution for my 3 young kids. But I realized that almost EVERY American Mother did not.

I felt confident and in control of the experience. So I wanted all Moms to feel that same confidence in the kitchen. So I added a modern twist to a classic and launched AHIMSA, the world’s first colorful stainless steel dinner for kids.

However, on my journey, I quickly understood the laxity of regulation for many food-related products. Today, there are more than 10,000 additives approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Many were carried over from the 1950s and many have no research showing they are safe for people to eat or drink. So, I set out to work with scientists, physicians, legislators and environmentalists to set a new standard for children’s products.

The way we feed our family matters. The little things we do every day matter.

That's why I wanted the little things about Ahimsa to matter. From avoiding plastic in our products and packaging to using a coloring process that avoided toxic-run off to intentionally designing tableware that excites kids to eat healthy at a young age - I wanted each step to mean something for children AND Mother Earth.

After all, people and the planet are connected and the lasting impact between the two will be felt not by us, but by our children. Ahimsa is not just a business to me - it’s a chance to change the system, change our thinking, and take actionable steps to make a positive impact on the world. I hope you will join our mission because the small things we do together can lead to great BIG things for the future.

With love & Ahimsa,
