Every mom wants to make sure that everything their child ingests is safe and nontoxic. Shouldn’t that also apply to their cups and utensils which go into their mouth on a daily basis?
Bisphenol-a, or BPA for short, is an industrial chemical that’s been used in making plastic since the 1960s. Research has shown that BPA can seep into food and beverages from the plastic. Though the FDA says BPA is not harmful in very small amounts, they are continuing that review since other research shows BPA has possible health effects on the brain and behavior, particularly in babies and children.
What can you do to stop worrying about BPA? Well, seek out bottles and sippy cups that are BPA free. Here’s just a small selection that you can order and begin putting your mind at ease.
