FAQ’s Kids’ Water Bottles

How do I choose the best water bottle for kids?

Firstly invest in a good quality branded bottle. Your main material options are plastic, metal or silicone.
Think about the mouthpiece. Is it non-spill/ leakproof? Can my child easily drink from that type of opening e.g. straw/spout.
Will it need to fit into a lunchbox? Will it need a handy carry handle?
If it is to be used at school everyday, think about a bottle with a lid, so that the mouthpiece is protected.

Why does my child need a reusable water bottle?

It’s kinder to the environment for a start. Your child will always have access to a drink when thirsty, especially when they’re active.
Most schools and pre-schools expect children to take their own named water bottle in.
They are also ideal for bedtime as your child can keep it next to their bed without the worry of spilling a whole cup of water over their covers.

What is the safest material for kids’ water bottles?

Stainless steel is ideal for drinking water. Not only are stainless steel bottles durable, they are also shatter resistant, withstand hot temperatures and keep drinks cool. If you are using plastic, make sure you opt for a BPA-free bottle.
