There is so much to keep track of while trying to limit your child’s exposure to myriad chemicals. I’ve written endlessly in the past year at Non-Toxic Kids about phthalates, parabens, lead, BPA, flame retardant chemicals, PFOAs, and PVC to name a few.
Busy and tired parents need simplicity. So I am always on the lookout for quick, concise guides to make living easier while protecting our kids.
The folks at Healthy Legacy and the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy put together this guide to safer children’s products. It has easy to read sections of important chemicals, how to avoid them, and can be printed, shoved into your purse or bag, and pulled out when your forget the difference between DMP, diethyl phthalate (DEP), and DBP.
Even better is the section which tells you the bad, better and best choices in many categories of endless need for parent shoppers such as: Feeding, Teething and Soothing; Utensils and Dishes; Pacifiers; Food and Breast milk Containers, and Food and Formula.
