Silicone straws are the ideal child-safe alternative to plastic disposable straws or metal reusable ones. They feel squishy and are available in normal width or a larger size that's better for smoothies. Available in a range of colours, these straws are durable and reusable, plus they're easy to carry in a changing bag or handbag. Of course, it's vital ensure your child does not bite their silicone straw. Silicone can be recycled, so check with your local authority to find out the best way of doing this.
