Today I have a company that will solve one of the most common questions I am asked: What do I use to drink out of on the go? We all know the scary details on BPA plastic, and plastics in general. I don’t recommend using any type of plastic water bottle. Instead look for a stainless steel bottle, preferably 18/8 grade which is the most optimal food safe grade. Glass is of course acceptable, but also breakable. When you’re on the go, stainless steel is the easiest and lightest option, and it’s safe for kids, too!
Let me introduce you to Eco Vessel. Eco Vessel is a great resource for stainless steel bottles, glass bottles, and stainless steel travel cups for kids. The company sent me one of their triple insulated 17 ounce Boulder Bottles to sample and review. I also already had purchased one of their kid’s Gobble-n-Go Snack Cups that I will review for you.
The triple insulated Boulder Bottle is pretty awesome. It’s easy to use with two screw top options (a skinny mouth opening or a wide mouth opening depending on your preference). The wide opening is large enough to fit ice cubs inside the bottle. I’m very impressed with the durability of the bottle. I accidentally dropped it twice on pavement and no dents! It also does a fabulous job at keeping drinks, soup, tea, coffee, smoothies, etc hot or cold. I’ve used it for both really hot things and really cold and they’ve held up their temperature in the Boulder Bottle for many hours. Because it’s triple insulated, there is no condensation on the outside of the bottle and your hands don’t burn if you’ve got a hot tea or soup inside. On their website, Eco Vessel says the Boulder Bottle can keep its contents cold for up to 36 hours and hot for up to 12 hours. I can vouch for that!
A couple weeks ago, I poured in boiling water with a tea bag then walked out the door at 8:00am. It was a chilly winter day. I was in the car all day running errands, so the bottle sat in a cool car all day long. I kept checking the tea every hour or so to see when it would be cool enough for me to drink. Before I knew it, it was lunch time and still too hot to sip. It was finally safe enough to drink by the time I got home around 6:00pm that evening. It was still pretty warm! I love having the option to bring a warm drink safely on the go with me, but now I make sure to make the tea first, then transfer it to the bottle after a few minutes of cooling on the counter. Overall, this is a great daily use stainless steel bottle and I otherwise use it for my water bottle through the day.
I originally found Eco Vessel when I was searching for a stainless steel travel container for Austin to use when in the car or around the house. He has really taken a liking to freeze dried fruits and veggies, but it can get messy if I’m not right there sitting with him or handing him one piece of fruit at a time. I wanted one of those reach-in toddler bowls you see all the babies using, but I wanted one that was not made of plastic. I happened onto Eco Vessel’s site and found their Gobble-n-Go Snack Cup! It is exactly what I was looking for!
Austin was 13 months when I first gave it to him to use. I had it filled with freeze dried pineapple and strawberries. It took him only a few minutes to figure out how to work the lid of the Gobble-n-Go Cup. The lid is made of food grade silicone (a much safer option than any plastic) and the cup base is made of stainless steel. The lid has X-shaped slits in the lid where a child’s hand can slip in and out easily, but no food can escape on its own. It also has two side handles that are very easy for his little hands to grasp on to. The cup can hold up to 16 ounces. You can also remove the lid and use it as a bowl with handles so your child can feed themselves easier. It’s perfect for traveling, but I also give it to him at home while he’s playing so I can get work done without worrying if he’s making a mess. This is a great gift for all moms of little ones, and there is still time to get one in time for Christmas!
