We’ve been through our fair share of water bottles in the past 6 years and I’m here to share some unfiltered opinions about the best non toxic water bottle for kids! Because we live in Singapore (literally smack dab on the equator) it’s scorching hot year round and our kids drink a LOT of water. They also refuse to drink their water warm 😂 … so our bottles need to keep drinks cold at school and on all of our outdoor adventures!
I know plastic water bottles are super tempting. They’re inexpensive, they come in every shape and size, and boast your kiddo’s fav disney characters… but hear me out for a sec. Even BPA free plastic contains endocrine disrupting compounds that are known to leach chemicals into the water. They found products made with the popular Tritan™ resins leached chemicals with estrogenic activity, including items made for use by babies.

So a much better option, if you’re looking to avoid toxins in plastic, is stainless steel. We could even take this one step further and opt for a silicone mouthpiece. Because if you’ve ever taken a look at a plastic mouthpiece you’ve probably seen how quickly a child can chew it to pieces. Silicone has a greater tensile strength than plastic and is more resistant to abrasion. Anytime you start to see discolouration, scratches, warping or any structural changes in plastic… it’s time to throw it away!!
Here’s a list of some of the tried and true bottles that we’ve loved over the years. They’re all double-wall stainless steel (meaning the outside of the bottle wont sweat when cold), and drinks stay cold for hours!
