Ahimsa is a line of the world's first colorful stainless steel dishes for kids! Ahimsa (uh-him-suh) is a Sanskrit word meaning avoiding harm. In 2018, the AAP released a policy statement warning parents that chemicals in plastic are harmful to a child’s hormones, growth and brain development. That’s why pediatrician-mom, Dr. Manasa Mantravadi, created a safe and practical solution for the table. Our mission is simple: Create safe products: Our high-quality, food-grade stainless steel won’t transfer harmful chemicals into your child’s food. Educate families: Our pediatricians provide tips and tools for healthy eating habits—and your child’s overall well-being at any age. Advocate for others: We strive to protect our planet, fight childhood food-insecurity and promote policy that protects human health. We invite you to join our mission is to replace plastic wherever children dine.
