Ahimsa is the world’s first colorful stainless steel dinnerware for kids. The company’s mission is to disrupt the plastic industry by redefining mealtime. They encourage families to take plastic off the dinner table and use safe, durable, and sustainable stainless steel in its place. Founded by Dr. Manasa Mantravadi, a pediatrician and mom, she is at the forefront of educating parents about the dangers of plastics and its harsh chemicals.
Dr. Mantravadi was alarmed after reading the American Academy of Pediatrics report on the dangers of plastics in dinnerware. Its findings noted how chemicals in plastic disrupt children’s hormones, growth, and development. Their recommendation was to use stainless steel, just like Dr. Mantravadi’s family had used for generations in India. That was the incentive she needed to start Ahimsa, a Sanskrit word for “avoiding harm.” It’s the first oath Manasa took as a physician and now it’s the oath of her company.
This doctor-designed dinnerwear was featured in Pop Sugar’s holiday gift guide highlighting presents for everyone in your life. The brand’s products are 100% recyclable and are intentionally designed to be versatile, growing with your child at each stage. You’ll never need to upgrade or replace them. Plus, there’s no risk of them chipping, peeling, or leaching. The line includes beautifully vibrant plates, bowls, cups, and utensils that have kids excited to come to the dining table. They recently introduced an infant set as well.
By simply changing a few daily habits, such as the type of dinnerware used, parents can ensure healthier kids and a healthier planet. Dr. Mantravadi hopes that as the new year approaches, more families will make a concerted effort to eliminate plastics in all areas of their lives.
