Let’s talk about nontoxic food storage.
It’s a well-documented fact that plastic containers leach toxic chemicals into the foods they contain. Especially when subjected to real life conditions such as heat, sunlight, microwaves, and dishwashers, etc.
In other words, when we eat food stored in plastic containers, we are eating chemicals harmful to the endocrine and reproductive systems.
This is not good, my friends! It’s not good for any of us, but especially for babies and young children, as well as for expectant mamas.
Several years ago, I began a quest to rid my kitchen of as much plastic as possible. Even with three young children, we use very little plastic. It can be done!
Below I share my favorite non-plastic, nontoxic food storage containers–the ones my family uses on a daily basis for baking, serving, storing, and transporting.
All of these options for nontoxic food storage are durable and affordable and have served me well for years. They’re proven winners!
