The market seems to be flooded with silicone tableware products now… hell, even Kmart have jumped on board. BUT I wanted to bust 3 myths about silicone that you need to be aware of when purchasing silicone dinnerware.
The number 1 thing = ensure you are buying LFGB silicone tableware (not FDA!). This means it is European safety certified which demand the highest and safest quality for kids.
ALL SILICONE IS THE SAME: Unfortunately this simply isn’t true. There are two major grades: FDA and LFGB.
Most silicone tableware (not ours) is made from FDA…. why? Because its cheaper to manufacturer. It contains fillers and therefore, isn’t pure silicone. So, if its heated in the microwave or oven, these toxic fillers are released which can react with your child’s food.
*** Always ask what grade of silicone the product you are buying is.
ALL SILICONE TABLEWARE IS SAFE TO HEAT: No, no no! If you heat FDA silicone tableware, nothing will happen to it – it won’t melt etc, however it will release toxins into your child’s food that you don’t see. What ever you do, don’t heat this silicone in the microwave or oven (and don’t place hot food in these either).
LFGB silicone is totally safe to heat – it is pure silicone and contains no fillers. Our tableware products are made from this.
ALL SILICONE TABLEWARE PRODUCTS WILL LAST A LIFETIME: Silicone that is FDA grade won’t last a lifetime, especially if placed in the dishwasher regularly. LFGB pure silicone will last with each child you have (and even longer).
Safety of your kids is our top priority and we only want to produce HIGH quality products for you to use.
Tip: Pinch your silicone – if you see a white line then it is FDA. No white line then it is LFGB.
