90 of the Safest Sippy Cups and Drink Bottles for Kids

 90 of the Safest Sippy Cups and Drink Bottles for Kids

What’s that? You need to find the safest sippy cups and drink bottles for kids, you say? No problem! We’ve just finished wading through several hundred options to put together the largest, most comprehensive list in existence to help make your life just a little bit easier.

After weeks of contacting companies, extracting answers, and poring over information, we were able to compile a master list of 90 products confirmed free of endocrine disrupting chemicals that meet the following criteria for safety:

  1. No BPA or BPS
  2. No recycling code #7 plastics
  3. No PVC, phthalates, polystyrene or melamine
  4. No “proprietary” materials
  5. Heavy metal safe

You’ll see that the sippy cups and drink bottles we included are mostly made of glass, stainless steel, polypropylene and silicone.

Don’t forget to check out our guide to Decoding the Mystery of Safer vs Toxic Plastic so you can look at your current kids cups and bottles to help you determine what materials they’re constructed of.

P.S. Did you know that BPA and BPS were recently shown to disrupt thyroid hormone too? Learn more about it here!

NOTE: We contacted as many companies as we possibly could, and there were only two brands that didn’t respond: NUK and Gerber (same company), although we did include one NUK product in the guide because we’d previously known its material makeup.

Additional Safer Products We’ve Already Confirmed for You

We’ve done an awful lot of research over the last 8 years to locate safer plastic products that are free of BPA, PVC, phthalates, melamine and other worrisome #7 plastics. So take be sure to check our shopping guides first before buying food related products:

  • Sonya

    I was wondering if you also tested the Camelbak “Eddy” kids water bottle & how it rated.

    • Hi Sonya, Camelbak Eddy bottles are made of a plastic that falls into the recycling code #7 category, so we don’t recommend using them. ~Laura

  • Melissa

    Thank you so much! You guys are awesome! I’m wondering if the sippy cup lids for LifeFactory glass bottles make the cut?

    • You’re so welcome, Melissa! Yes, LifeFactory’s sippy cup lids are made of polypropylene, so they’re an excellent choice. ~Laura

  • You’re very welcome! We haven’t held each of these cups in our hands, but we’ve confirmed with each manufacturer directly to verify materials. We do have to depend on the companies’ representatives to give us accurate information, but it’s been a reliable method in our experience.

    We spoke with a representative from Tommee Tippee during our research, and she informed us that all Tommee Tippee sippy cups are made of recycling code #5 polypropylene, however, we’ve since taken them off of our list due to the recent incidents of mold growing in unreachable valve parts. ~Laura

  • Stacey Wingard

    I’m SO happy I came across this list. Thank you!!!! When you spoke with Thermos did they specify what kind of plastic they use for their lids/spouts/straws?

    • You’re very welcome, Stacey! Thermos lids, straws and spouts are made from either polypropylene or silicone. ~Laura

  • Emily

    I noticed that the skip hop stainless steel bottles are on the list, but not the plastic straw bottles. Is there a reason why? Do you know what the plastic ones are made of? And are they safe?
    Also, have you checked into the munchkin miracle 360 cup? Are they safe? They say BPA free, but I’m not sure if they are safe or not.
    Thank you so much for your hard work on this blog!

    • Hi Emily, Glad you found the article useful! We purposely excluded the Skip Hop plastic straw bottles because they’re made of a recycling code #7 plastic. The Munchkin Miracle 360 cup is included in our guide (in the Munchkin linkout) because it’s made of #5 polypropylene. ~Laura

      • nickole

        is #5 polypropylene ok?
