The most common concern I get about our product is from parents of young children. They are convinced that their child will bite into a glass straw (because they chew on plastic ones) and the glass will shatter in the child’s mouth. Is this true or false?
FALSE!! I can tell you with confidence that the scenario mentioned above is not possible. I liken it to a parent being worried that their child will bite through a Pyrex baking dish! In comparison to everyday drink ware which is typically made with crystal glass that is very fragile and easily breakable our straws are made with the same glass as Pyrex therefore making them extremely strong.
The photo collage above shows my youngest who is just over two years old. I had a huge glass of freshly made celery/carrot/apple/orange/spinach juice and he managed to drink almost half of it! He was actually demanding I give it to him.
Which brings me to another point, not only are Strawesome straws safe for kids but they make feeding them vegetables so much easier, in turn making them healthier! My little guy has been drinking green smoothies and juices since he first started eating real food. His taste buds grew to know and like vegetables because we started him on them so early (We opted against that nasty rice cereal! Who wants to eat that anyway?!?)
While lying in bed with my little guy tonight getting him to sleep I was touching his back and just thinking of the tiny bones in his body. My thoughts went on to his little brain and how much I love to see it develop over time and his little heart beating in his chest sustaining life in his body. I thought about little fingers and little feet and all the nutrients that his body will need to develop and grow properly over time. Why on earth would I want to give him anything less than perfect nutrition?! This is why I avoid processed foods, dyes and additives. This is why I use safe pure products on his body that lack fragrances to cover up his own perfect smell.
I’m not perfect all the time but I do my best to insure that my children are getting what their bodies need and deserve.
Leave a comment and tell me about a little guy/gal in your life and I will send you straw so that you can keep them healthy, happy and living life to it’s fullest! We’ll choose a random winner on Monday, March 19th.
