The safe material is very important to protect the baby’s health. We can’s bear any harmful material that affects the baby’s health. So let’s study what bowl materials are used in the market commonly.
The plastic is the most common material used in the baby dinnerware. Plastic is made of polymer compounds such as polyethylene or polypropylene. And also add some colorants, solvents or plasticizers, to make colorful bowls. This chemical substance is bad for the baby’s health.
The advantages of plastic dinner are heat resistant, difficult to drop broken, non-deformation, smooth feel, and light texture. Babies can feed by themselves. But it is difficult to clean, the oil and grease are easy to stick on the plastic.

At present, natural bamboo or solid wood is very popular. Because there is no chemical substance incorporated, there is no toxicity, and natural materials are light, waterproof, and non-perishable. They are good choices, but they are prone to mold. We should pay attention to the disinfection treatment. Nature bamboo and wood bowls can’t resist too high-temperature and easy to crack.

The 100% food-grade silicone is safe for the baby’s health. It’s durable, easy to clean, waterproof, difficult to drop or tear broken. It is bendable, and easy to recover the shape. The silicone bowl with lid also has good thermal insulation for daily use.
