At this stage in the game, you’re more concerned with what goes into your toddler’s mouth than what comes out of it.
Eco-Kids’s Eco-Dough is the perfect playmate for inquisitive model makers. Made from plant, fruit, and vegetable extracts, the colorful playstuff contains no chemicals, artificial dyes, or metals. Soy-, dairy-, and gluten-free versions cater to those with food allergies, while compostable cornstarch containers are toxin free.
So next time you see that pretend cake being chomped on?
Just roll with it.
