Keep little ones hydrated and healthy with our roundup of the best non-toxic kids water bottles
The struggle is real. Finding the perfect drink kids bottle is the holy grail of parenting. The one that doesn’t leak, the one that doesn’t have ugly written all over it, and lastly, the one that’s good for them and the environment. BPA – or bisphenol A – and phthalates, both known hormone disrupters are common in many drink bottles. These chemicals cause bigger problems in kids than adults due to their still-developing immune systems and liver (which works hard to detox our bodies). With that in mind, we’ve rounded up the best non-toxic drink bottles for kids of all ages.
Bkr have long been our favourites and they’ve recently added ‘teeny’ bottles (250mls) to their already stylish line-up. The bottles are glass with a silicone overlay, so they are a better option for older kids. They’re also sold in sets – perfect for siblings or to have a handy spare.
