Staying hydrated is important for all of us, including our kids. But buying a plastic bottle of water every time you, or someone else in your family, needs a drink is both expensive and not great for the environment. Plus, when you give a bottle without a lid on it to your kid, you’re basically asking them to spill it. Right?! So, if you haven’t already, now is definitely the time to make the switch to reusable bottles for everyone. Plus, your kid will love having their own cup everywhere they go. Promise.
Below are some of our favorite tried and tested, BPA-free, leak-resistant options for your little one.
Hydro Flask Kids Water Bottle
This 12-ounce, wide-mouth bottle from crowd-favorite Hydro Flask ($29.95 on Amazon) is almost identical to the awesome adult version, but with a straw cap that is easy to sip and minimizes spills. Its insulated, durable, stainless steel design also keeps drinks cold for up to 24 hours, while a non-slip grip helps keep it in your kid’s hands.
CamelBak Eddy Kids Water Bottle
There’s a reason every kid we know owns this 0.4-liter bottle ($13 on Amazon). It is spill-resistant, has an easy-to-bite valve that kids absolutely love, and it comes in so many sweet graphics for them to choose from.
Klean Kanteen Kid Kanteen Stainless Steel Sport Bottle
Get matching bottles for the whole crew! This Kid Kanteen ($16.50 on Amazon) is lightweight, durable and easy to clean. It also comes with a spill-proof cap and a soft-to-sip-on silicone spout. Plus, even though the bottle isn’t insulated, its opening is big enough to slip a few ice cubes inside, when needed.
Munchkin Miracle 360 Trainer Cup
Thanks in large part to its cool, spoutless design, the Munchkin Miracle 360 Cup ($11.49 on Amazon) is great for toddlers who are transitioning to regular cups. Its handles make it easier for their little hands to hold, its top automatically seals when your kid stops drinking, so you don’t have to worry about spills, and it’s super easy to clean.
YETI Rambler Jr.
This new 12-ounce bottle from Yeti ($29.99 on Amazon) has all the qualities that people have come to love from the brand, but is perfect for kids. Made with durable stainless steel that will endure all kinds of accidents, it’s also dishwasher-safe and features a leak-resistant straw cap.
