Safe and Chic Food Containers for Your Family

Earth Day Awareness!

Its time to dive into our kitchen cabinets and take stock of the harmful plastic baby bottles and storage containers that we use daily.

You’ve probably heard of BPA, the chemical used in polycarbonate plastic food and beverage containers and in resin linings for cans. Originally considered safe, the FDA has now acknowledged concerns about the potential effects of BPA on the brain and prostate gland in fetuses, infants and young children.

Women are usually the decision makers in regards to the kitchen products purchased. We owe it to our families to research

these basics and provide them with the safest alternatives possible.

Action we can take to protect our families:

1-Choose glass,  or BPA free plastic containers and baby bottles, pacifiers, etc.

2-To store hot foods, leftovers, etc. use glass, porcelain or stainless steel containers.

3-Avoid BPA laden plastic containers with the No. 7  recycling label.

4-Dont microwave plastic containers.

5-Use dried beans, fresh fruits and vegetables instead of canned foods which contain BPA- containing resin.
