Today I’d like to share a list of my favorite products that help me in my quest to create the healthiest environment possible for my family, from the foods we enjoy to the products we clean with and put on our bodies.
Beyond just figuring out what your kids will eat (often a full time job), when it comes to storing, transporting and serving food to little ones, it’s surely a process of trial and error. Finding products that are earth-friendly and non-toxic is important, but that doesn’t mean a whole lot unless they’re also the most utilitarian. Narrowing it down can cost a lot of time money, which is why I wanted to share this list with you.
With this in mind, I recommend all the below products (for toddlers, kids and adults) because they are absolute mainstays in my home. In fact, I mention them so often to friends and family that I just had to compile them for you.
Most if not all are available on Amazon.
Generally, these items are all BPA, paraben, phthalate, and sulfate free. The cleaning products include non-toxic ingredients and, generally, are free of allergy-inducing preservatives. The food item have few ingredients and are non-gmo, (often) organic) and are lower in sugar than some more popular brands. Others are simply on the list because of the huge convenience they’ve brought to our busy family’s life.
Please note that I have absolutely no affiliation with any of the companies/brands represented below; I simply hope that some of these produces will make a difference in your lives as they have for us!
I look forward to sharing more of our favorites in the future as well.
