As a new parent, you’ve probably noticed kids sipping from cutely decorated stainless steel tumblers. Naturally, you want one for your kiddo! Here’s everything you need to know about this hot new trend!
Before you read all of the pros, here are some things to be cautious of. Stainless steel is a hard surface. If your child were to drop it, you want to ensure that the cup is light enough that it won’t cause an “ouchie”. Consider waiting to purchase 10 oz tumblers until your child gets a little older, and then graduate them to a 12 or 14 oz size.
Another concern about stainless steel that parents raise is that some stainless steel contains lead. As long as you’re checking that your child’s product is made with food grade stainless steel you’ll be in the clear, because food grade stainless steel has to be approved by the FDA. Now that you know what to look for, here are all of the pros of stainless steel sippy cups for toddlers and kids.
Stainless Steel Sippy Cups Are Durable
Stainless steel tumblers are made with durability in mind. Compared to sippy cups made from other materials, like plastic, stainless steel sippy cups are ultra durable. This will save you from needing to run to the store to pick up a new sippy cup every time one gets dropped and cracked. Stainless steel sippy cups' durability ultimately saves you time and money in the long run.
Stainless Steel Sippy Cups Are Free From Harmful Chemicals
When you give your child a plastic sippy cup, you run the risk of them ingesting BPAs and other harmful chemicals. With food grade stainless steel sippy cups, you can rest easy knowing that your child isn’t being exposed to hidden chemicals.
Stainless Steel Sippy Cups Are Eco-Friendly
Instead of going through carton after carton of apple juice with single use plastic straws, a stainless steel tumbler for kids is much better for the environment. As your child grows out of his or her 12 oz sippy cup, the cup should be in good enough condition to give to a fellow parent who has a small child or you can save it to pass on to your own child’s future siblings. Our Grow With Me stainless steel sippy cups comes with two lid options and converts your kiddo’s sippy cup into a small tumbler perfect for toddlers and younger kids. You also have the option of recycling stainless steel tumblers. Who knows, you may even be able to get a little money back depending on where you recycle the stainless steel.
Insulated Stainless Steel Sippy Cups Keep Drinks Cool
On particularly hot days, it can be difficult to keep little ones cool. If they’re too hot for too long, they can suffer from heat illness. Stainless steel sippy cups help to reduce the risk of your child overheating, because they can keep liquids cool for longer periods of time. If you live in a place where the temperatures spike during the summer, consider adding a stainless steel drinking cup to your list of items to pack for a day out.
Stainless Steel Sippy Cups Are Customizable
If your kid has a favorite animated show, there’s a good chance that you’ve purchased a sippy cup at the store with an image of their favorite character. Have you ever almost accidentally swiped another child’s sippy cup, because it’s the same exact one as your child’s? It’s easy to switch up sippy cups at daycare or at the park. By buying blank tumblers, you can customize it with all of your child’s favorite characters or even family pictures, so you never get confused again.
