I’m not shy at all about my love for eco-friendly Green Toys, so it’s probably no surprise that I squealed a little (okay, a lot) when I heard they were launching a line of tableware for kids. Not toy tableware–the stuff you can actually eat off of.

And let me just say, the squealing? Totally warranted.

Made from recycled milk jugs and completely free of BPA, pthalates and melamine–something that’s tough to avoid in kids tableware– the GreenEats line is simple, sturdy, and dishwasher safe.  We’ve been using the divided plates and tumblers for the last few weeks, and I have to say I’m super impressed with how well this line has stood the test of many meals and many washes.

The plates and cups are weighty, which is a nice change from the extremely light plastic that you tend to see with kids dishes; it actually makes it easier for littler kiddos to use, with less fear of spills.

While you won’t find a huge range of colors, that’s perfectly fine with me. All that means is less fights at the dinner table. Well at least about who has what plate, anyway. -Kristen
