8 years ago I began this blog to share safe, eco-friendly products I found for my family. One of the first product reviews was for a stainless steel sippy cup. I was so excited to find a plastic alternative. I also had to search hard for plastic alternative dishware for my children. We still use this bunny dishware.
We were just sent stainless steel dishwater I like better than our bunny ware. It isn’t enameled but is brushed stainless steel. It is durable and will last!
Untangled Living sent us a 5-piece collection from their ANYWare collection.
ANYWARE COLLECTION DISHWARE IS:
Food-grade #304, 18/8 brushed stainless steel
Stackable, compact, portable, and dishwasher safe
Perfect for kids, hikes, picnicking, boating, and pool-side
Safe, stylish, unbreakable alternative to glass or plastic
Great for your healthy lifestyle; good for the planet
Responsibly made in China
This dish set is super nice! I love it! It is high quality, and the little gecko and butterfly are delightful.
ANYWare was created by Untangled Living founder Sue Volpe of Los Angeles, CA and Ontario, Canada as a healthy, BPA-free alternative to plastic dishware for her toddlers. As her kids grew, Sue realized that they kept reaching for their ANYWare dishes for meals and snacks, before they’d reach for anything else.
In addition to being made from durable and beautiful, food-grade stainless steel, Sue created four great contemporary designs, instead of typical “kid” designs, so the dishes are as stylish as they are durable.
Because they’re compact, stackable, and unbreakable, active families are loving them for hiking, camping, picnicking, boating, poolside, and entertaining.
Plastic is not safe. The chemicals in plastic, whether BPA or the more dangerous chemicals that have replaced it in BPA-free plastic, cause harm to our bodies and to our ecosystems. As consumers become more aware, more great products like ANYWare become available.
Having special dinnerware for your children is not entirely necessary; however, children, especially when they first begin eating solids, love to pick up their dishes and drop them to the floor experimenting with gravity. If you want to avoid breaking your china and avoid plastic, stainless steel is the best option.
It is almost impossible to remain entirely plastic-free (even harder to avoid made in China), but there are many choices. Keeping plastics away from your food is crucial, especially for children. As the Environmental Working Group explains:
Pound for pound, children get higher doses of chemicals than adults.
I highly recommend the ANYWare collection to protect your child from the chemicals in plastic.

“Untangled” is a state of being. It is based on staying true to whom we really are and staying connected to that truth as we live our lives.
We all get “tangled up” and confused from time to time. Health, work, family and personal relationships. It gets overwhelming, but that’s ok, it happens! The good news is we can get untangled. It is ultimately our choice.
This set is gorgeous!! I love it! The size is just right for Paige’s little toddler hands. Everything is the perfect size. I can give Paige just the portion she needs and I LOVE the curved edges on the plate. Love them! If it weren’t for those, Paige’s food would just end up on the floor from trying to get it off the plate.
The first time we used them she pointed out that she was “just like mommy & daddy.” She loves that she is using the same thing that we are, and I am too! This set is such a great way to transition your toddler from typical toddler plates and utensils to using “big people” utensils!
The pieces are stainless steel, so you know they will last. They are dishwasher safe, stackable, and durable. Included in the set is a cup, bowl, spoon, fork, and plate. Every piece looks great, and the butterfly just makes it pop! Such a cute set!
I highly recommend this set for your little one. I know he/she will love it just like my daughter does!
I was given the fantastic opportunity to review the butterfly set from Untangled Living. The first thing that stood out to me about the set was how stylish it was. It provides my daughter with a dining set that looks “nicer.” Whether it’s Thanksgiving dinner, a Sunday night or a weekday lunch, this set takes the table to a new level. While still remaining cute with the butterfly design, it has a more mature look.
Aside from it looking fabulous it is also dishwasher safe, stackable, durable and food grade quality. They’re easy to clean and convenient to pack up and take on the go. I love our butterfly set and am excited to see what else they come out with!
It won’t be long before Willow will be ready to start feeding herself. The plastic dishes I had back when my other kids were babies are long gone, so I am going to have to get her new dishes that will be the right size for her little fingers. This time around, I have decided that stainless steel is the way to go. At Untangled Living, I found adorable stainless steel dishware that is just perfect for small children.
The dishware from Untangled Living has lots of advantages over plastic. First, it will last for a lifetime. It won’t break. The decorative design won’t fade away. Fifty years from now your great grandchildren could be using them and they will still look the same. They are dishwasher safe. You will save money over time because you don’t have to replace them. But most importantly, stainless steal is BPA free so its safe for our children.
At Untangled Living, you can receive a five piece set of stainless steal dishware for only $44. You can choose between butterfly and gecko designs. Each set is the perfect size for children. The small sizes make them easy to grip and kids will love the fun designs. Check out Untangled Living and learn the advantages of stainless steel today.
This set of stainless steel children’s dishes is simply adorable! I have been looking for a way to be eco-friendly with my children’s dishes, and I have found it! I also LOVE that this is a Canadian company, because I love to support Canadian made products as much as possible.
We received the ANYware Set with Butterflies and my girls love it. Since we only have one set, there has been a little fighting about who gets to use it. But we came up with a solution. At each meal, each child gets either the bowl or plate, and then we switch at the next meal. So far that is working and teaches the girls turn-taking! I love teachable moments.
All pieces of the collection wash fabulously and I am definitely very happy with my Untangled Living Anyware Set. This is a set that will stand the test of time, that I can give to my girls when they are adults and say “you used to eat from this”, and that will make wonderful, eco-friendly baby gifts. I have two sisters having babies in the next year, and the ANYware Collection is on the top of my list of gifts for them!
A HUGE plus for me is that I can buy the Untangled Living ANYware Collection locally in Calgary, AB at several retailers (only about 2.5 hours from where I live)!
I have discovered a great alternative to that plastic bowl and spoon that people use to feed their small children. There are so many concerns today regarding the health risks associated with a wide range of plastics…you can read about a few of these concerns on Web MD. So, what do you give a small child who is likely to toss their plate on the floor when they are done with it? Check out the untangled ANYWhere collection.
These dishes are wonderful!! The butterfly design is too cute – perfect for a little girl. Sue also carries the set with a gecko design every little boy will love. Of course girls might like gecko’s too – and boys, well, everyone loves butterflies The cup is the perfect size for little hands, as are the fork and spoon. They are quite sturdy too, won’t bend to easily. The dishes are a wonderful size, though my youngest (who is now 18 years old) didn’t think they were big enough Well – maybe not for him, but they are for a “normal” sized child!
