Dependable & Safe: Why We Love Klean Kanteen for Kids

At ANB Baby, we know how you prioritize your child's hydration and health. That's why we decided to try out the Klean Kanteen kid cups and water bottles. After extensive use, we’re excited to share our thoughts on these reliable and eco-friendly products.

About Kleen Kanteen

Klean Kanteen is a family-owned company that introduced its first reusable steel bottle in 2004, aiming to provide a non-toxic alternative to plastic bottles. Their focus is on preventing single-use waste and protecting the environment. The company also stands out for meeting the rigorous and independent B Corp standards of performance, accountability, and transparency.

What We Love About Klean Kanteen

Design and Durability

Klean Kanteen offers a straightforward and practical design for their cups, focusing on easy cleaning and usability. The Klean Kanteen Kid’s Cup is easy for small hands to hold, fits in most stroller and car seat cup holders, and comes with a splash-proof straw lid with matching reusable straw. You can also pick up a spill-proof sippy lid, fantastic for little ones who are transitioning from bottles.

The Klean Kanteen water bottles come with a kid-friendly sports cap for easy sipping on the go. With a slim and compact shape, it conveniently fits in most cup holders. The narrow neck of the cup is child-friendly, providing a comfortable grip for little hands. Its minimalistic construction consists of few parts, making it effortless to disassemble and reassemble, and cleaning requires only a basic bottle brush without the need for any special tools.


We were especially impressed by the durability of the Kleen Kanteen water bottle line. These products are built to withstand the demands of everyday use by active kids. Even after accidental drops and bumps, they held up remarkably well without any leaks or dents.

Safety and Eco-Friendliness

Klean Kanteen's commitment to safety is commendable. Both the sippy cups and water bottles are made from certified 90% post-consumer recycled food-grade steel that is free from harmful chemicals like BPA, phthalates, and lead. Even the straw is made of food-grade silicone and recycled stainless steel. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your child's drinks remain uncontaminated. We also appreciate the eco-friendly aspect of the Klean Kanteen stainless steel water bottle collection. By choosing these reusable Klean Kanteen water bottle options over disposable alternatives, you help reduce plastic waste and the overall carbon footprint.

Ease of Use and Cleaning

Using and cleaning these products is a breeze. The sippy cap and sports cap are both easy to open and close, ensuring a spill-free experience. The bottles also have a wide mouth, making it convenient to fill them with ice cubes or add fruit for infused water. The stainless steel material doesn't retain odors or flavors, and the wide mouth allows for easy access with a bottle brush or sponge. Additionally, all parts are dishwasher safe, saving time and effort. 

Need a beverage holder that’s not only easy to use and clean but can keep your little one’s beverage at the right temperature? Check out the Klean Kanteen insulated water bottle! The double-wall vacuum insulation keeps drinks hot or cold for extended periods, making it suitable for both hot and cold beverages.


Variety and Customization

Klean Kanteen offers a wide range of colors and designs for their kids' sippy cups and water bottles. This allows children to choose their favorite style, making hydration more fun and personal. The vibrant colors are appealing and help in easily identifying their bottle or cup in a crowd.

Price and Value

While Klean Kanteen products may be priced slightly higher than other options on the market, their exceptional quality, durability, and safety features make them worth the investment. These products are built to last, reducing the need for frequent replacements.

What Parents Are Saying About Klean Kanteen Cups and Water Bottles for Kids

Take a look at what other families are loving about these healthy, durable, eco-friendly drink options:

“My toddler is a huge fan of this new straw cup! I like that the lids can be interchangeable and it's a great stepping stone to her using a 'big kid' cup. It's also very durable and I have no doubt that it'll hold up just fine when she decides to throw it every few minutes.”

“I love these cups for my boys. The straw works great for my older toddler. We love the color and it’s easy to clean. Highly recommend. Purchased the sippy cap too for my younger child, and it works great! Awesome selection!”

“Amazing product…using for an older child who is disabled. We have tried many cups but this is the best by far. He can drink independently and does not swallow a lot of extra air like some cheaper brands. Does not leak even if dropped…Have ordered 3. Expensive but worth the money…Great brand, will be recommending it to our friends in the disabled community as this is problematic for many people.”

“I've been a long-time Klean Kanteen customer because of the quality of the product and less waste. I have two toddlers under 4 and they were constantly drinking from my Kanteen, so I purchased two kid kanteens (one red, one blue) with classic sports tops and they love them! They carry them everywhere - even to bed. They've been tossed around a few times, but for the most part, my boys take care of their things. That being said, the times the kanteens have gotten tossed around or accidentally dropped, they don't have any dings or paint chipped off. Great quality. Fan for life.”

The Verdict

Overall, the Klean Kanteen kids' sippy cups and water Bottles have exceeded our expectations. The design, durability, safety, and ease of use make them a top choice for parents who prioritize their child's health and the environment. With these products, you can feel confident that your child will stay hydrated and enjoy their drinks without any worries.
