Life Without Plastic Cereal Bowls Review & Giveaway

Baby Brandon's Adventures
Holiday Gift Guide presents...


I don't really like using plastic bowls/dishes or containers due to some health risks. I remember when I was told that heating food in a plastic container (even if the label says microwaveable) is not very good for us. Covering a ceramic dish with saran-wrap and heating in the microwave is bad too. Toxic chemicals can develop and can be harmful to us if consumed over the long term.

There are alternatives to plastic such as aluminium, stainless steel, wood, ceramic, etc. These bowls are the perfect gift for this year's holiday. Whether it's for your kids, your relatives, or friend with kids, they will enjoy it.

I was given the opportunity to review the kid's cereal bowls and the stainless steel sandwich container from Life Without Plastic created by Sanctus Mundo, a brand of products that contain little or no plastic at all. They are dedicated to helping our families and children and making the environment better by encouraging us to reduce the use of plastics.

The interior of these kid's bowls is made of high quality stainless steel and the outside is made of stable and durable polypropylene plastic. Dimensions: 12 cm (4.7") diameter X 6.5 cm (2.6") height. Volume: approx. 1 1/2 cups.

The four bowl set comes with four colors, each with a different design:

- Pink Rabbit
- Blue Dolphin
- Green Frog
- Yellow Tiger


The bowls are great for Brandon to use. We used it for cereal, snacks, fruits, and even warm food for lunch and dinner. Since these are stainless steel, it is not microwaveable. Brandon likes the colorful bowls and the cute characters printed on the side. Ever since he noticed these new bowls, he wanted to use them instead of the melamine bowls that he's been using.

Here's a little tip from LifeWithoutPlastic: The lids from standard yogurt containers (750g/26oz) fit nicely on these bowls for keeping leftovers fresh.







The Stainless Steel Sandwich Box is compact and fits a standard sandwich perfectly. There are no latches for the lid, so I used rubber bands to keep it in place. Because it is metal, it has a bit of weight. I like it that it's durable and reusable and easy to clean. The only thing I'm worried about is dropping it and putting a dent on the corner. I dropped my aluminum water bottle before and made an ugly dent. ugh!




BUY IT
There are many other wonderful children's dish and cup set available. The bowls with the stainless steel interior comes in a set of four at price of $19.99. If you like to purchase individual bowls, each costs $6.95.






The bowls come in an eco-friendly designer box by Matthew Langille. As an artist myself, I give him a thumbs up for the great artwork.









WIN IT
One (1) lucky reader will have a chance to win a kid's cereal bowl set with the stainless steel interior. Chosen winner will be selected via Random.org. Winner will have 48 hours to respond to claim their prize. Make sure you leave your email so I can contact you.
