Safer Kids Toys & Gear: Healthy Child Healthy World

Safer Kids Toys & Gear: Healthy Child Healthy World

Healthy Child Healthy World is a wonderful resource for anyone trying to get rid of toxins in their everyday life. Their Healthy Home Improvement infographic and ebook as well as pregnancy guides are just a few of their free available resources. Now they’ve put out a new ebook: Easy Steps to Safer Toys & Children’s Gear. This ebook is a resource like nothing I’ve ever seen – I wish I’d had it before I had my daughter! It is truly comprehensive, covering topics including:

  • baby gear: pacifiers – natural rubber is your best bet; bottles and food handling – try to go with glass & stainless steel, avoid plastic and melamine, strollers and carseats
  • toys and playthings: launder those stuffies!
  • electronics: remember “distance is your friend” as I’ve learned in my research about wifi
  • dressing up: clothes, accessories, and makeup
  • art supplies: paint, markers, crayons, and clay can all be hazardous!

Considering that it’s a free resource, there is absolutely no reason you shouldn’t have a read!

They’ve also put together this fabulous infographic about where toxics can lurk in art supplies – something that may not ever cross your mind when you’re doing crafts with your kiddos!
