Children's tableware standards


Standards for children's tableware mainly involve product safety, hygiene and applicability. For children's tableware, the following are some common standard requirements:

Material safety: Children's tableware should be made of materials that are harmless and meet food contact safety standards, such as food-grade plastic, stainless steel, glass or ceramics, stone imitation porcelain, etc. These materials should avoid containing harmful substances such as BPA (bisphenol A), melamine, etc.

Protection from sharp edges and sharp parts: The edges and parts of tableware should be designed to be smooth and avoid sharp edges and sharp parts to reduce the risk of accidental injury when used by children.

Anti-slip design: The grip part of children's tableware should adopt an anti-slip design so that little hands can hold it firmly and improve the stability and safety of use.

Easy to clean and disinfect: Children's tableware should be easy to clean and not prone to bacterial growth. The surface of the material should be smooth and not absorb food residue, making it easier for parents to clean and disinfect the tableware.

Appropriate size and weight: The size and weight of children's tableware should be appropriate for children and consistent with their hand coordination and oral development. The size and weight of tableware should enable children to use it independently, and avoid using tableware that is too large or heavy.

Color and pattern safety: The color and pattern of children's tableware should use food-grade dyes or coatings that comply with relevant safety standards. These dyes or coatings should be non-toxic and resistant to peeling or fading to ensure safety for children.

In addition, many countries and regions have developed specific standards and certification bodies for children's tableware, such as ASTM F963 in the United States, EN 14372 in the European Union, and GB 4806.8 in China. Certified children's tableware will usually be marked with the corresponding certification mark on the product to prove that it meets relevant safety requirements.

When purchasing children's tableware, parents should choose certified products and pay attention to the safety, cleanliness and applicability of the products to ensure the safety and health of children when using tableware.
