Ten Children’s Stainless Steel Water Bottles Reviewed

My family on a hike – photo by D. Hennessey

This is a review of TEN Stainless Steel Water Bottles for Children made by ten different companies.

As a Dad I am delighted to find out there are now numerous choices of stainless steel water bottles for children and each of my children has their own personal water bottle. Gone are the days when only completely plastic bottles were available.

If you are interested, my family and I are active hikers (that is us in the picture above) and it is because of my belief in the importance of water for healthy living I created a stainless steel water bottle review located here. After the posting went live I found out from email plenty of parents were looking for a comprehensive review of stainless steel water bottles for children.

By the way, I recommend that if you are interested in any of the bottles written about here and you click to find current pricing make sure you read over the customer reviews. Reviews often include comments about leaking issues and paint coming off on certain bottles. To me, the reviews were especially interesting since I found other people had the same issues I had with one of my children’s bottles.

So here are the Ten Stainless Steel Water Bottles I know including comments on the ones our children use:

Well, just like any review this took a lot more time than I originally anticipated. I do hope that if you use this information to make your buying decision you will help value my time by buying your bottle through one of the Amazon links in this review. Then Amazon will give me at least a few cents for my time.

Best of Health to you and the children in your life,
