Filed under 食, 小C
great picture! tells different portions in a very subtle way!!🙂
cr: it’s a yummy photo 🙂
JLS: 出街時佢從來都冇食兒童(垃圾)餐架 😉
我囡囡學校, 由小朋友開始學用杯飲水, 就鼓勵小朋友用玻璃杯, 正因如此, 小朋友才會學懂小心…so far, 我個囡由歲幾開始自己用玻璃杯玻璃碗食飯飲水, 從未試過打爛任何野…一句, 都是大人是否給予機會小朋友.
另外, 我給小女用玻璃餐具的另一大原因, 是我不喜膠餐具, 我成日覺得會食咗D膠同化學物質落肚…
Can’t agree more! Just can’t really trust plastic, no matter what grade. I also wonder how safe is silicon bake ware.
吃麥皮? Very healthy…
Your pic reminds me of my childhood… I had oatmeal (plus eggs and toasts when I had enough teeth for them…) for breaky for 17 years old… good old days…
I wonder how 小C would feel when she reads your blog, say, 17 years from now… sweet memories…
(Nah… she probably won’t think those were sweet memories until she is 30… :P)
One more point:
You are all experts in kids management… but I guess I am the expert here with materials…
About what Siugub has said: Most Plastic is actually pretty safe, nothing would leak out of it so long it is manufactured properly. However, plastic is harder to clean properly even with detergent… So, on the hygiene point of view, you probably should stick with glassware… Because of this same reason, you probably don’t want to use a plastic cup for teeth brushing either.
Plus don’t let kids use styroform (發泡膠) cup especially with hot drink… 發泡膠 can have chemical leak out of it if it contains hot things.
Disclaimer: It is not a scientific analysis. And any statement related to safety issues should be evaluated carefully. (No responsibility on my side. LOL.)
RC：Yes yes, at least 30. 😉
Thanks for the tips! I shouldn’t order takeaway in foam containers anymore… About plastic ware, have you heard about those recalls on bottles with BPA?
Ah 4, why do you call them 玻璃碗 (glass bowl)? They look more like china, yes/no/maybe?
you are in top 3 search result for 玻璃碗 (glass bowl), is that why? hehe…
About BPA… Sorry for talking so long to reply… Since I am a semi-expert, I need to think a little and be a bit careful on giving an opinion…
I would said BPA is almost unavoidable unless you give up on plastic completely. It is a major component in many plastics we use every day…
While there are residual chemicals in plastics… the chance of them leaking out is not like high high…
The thing is, most chemicals do accumulate in our body. It is when it is above a critical level that it becomes harmful…
So, I would say, for kids, don’t use plastics for hot things and very hot food (like deep fried stuff with hot oil on them)…
Other thing…. you might not want kids to drink from soda can either….
Best, if you buy softdrink or juice or water… the container should either be PET (which I think is now the case for most plastic bottle: those not for hot drink), glass (probably best!), paper carton (though they do have I think PET liner on them).
Sorry for not being too helpful…
BTW… using the word glass bowl is correct because China (the material) is glass.
Thanks so much! Hahahha isn’t handy to have a materials science expert around??
Think I’m just gonna use more glass anyway la. And, haha, “you might not want kids to drink from soda can" — i might not want kids to drink any soda anyway LOL😉
No soda?! How cruel…
Guess 小C’s teeth are more important…
In fact she doesn’t like sparkling beverages. Like mama like daughter. 🙂
BPA is usually found in hard plastic. You can look at the recycled no, usually under the bottle, or plastic container. No. 7 indicates a higher possibility of leaking BPA.
Some plastics do not have BPA, like the Brita water pitchers in US, even though that doesn’t mean they won’t leak anything toxic either.
Exactly! One day they’ll say BPA is found to be leaking, and then the next day they’ll say oh sorry, actually XYZ is leaking too. Better to stick with glass i guess.
Thanks for the info.
