• Our Guide to the Best Water Bottles for Kids of all Ages

    January 5, 2018 • EAT, GUIDES

    Looking for a kids water bottle that can handle being knocked around and is free from harmful chemicals?

    Traditional plastic water bottles often contain toxic materials. They can release potentially harmful chemicals such as Bisphenol A (BPA) and Dioxin.  The negative health effects of these ingredients can show up over time. These chemicals are well known hormone disruptors and can eventually lead to cancer and other health issues. Small amounts can leach from the container into the water.

    With our minds once again turning to the start of the school year, here are our top suggestions for water bottles that won’t harm kids.

    Please note, ages are a guide.

    The cleverly designed bottles come with many special features that tick a lot of boxes that other bottles don’t. These include a special BPA-free leak-proof top with a one-way valve.

It is also double walled which makes it super insulated for 10-12 hours and keeps it condensation free.
