Foogo Thermos FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about the Foogo Thermos product line.
Are Foogo products BPA-Free?
All Foogo Thermos products are BPA free and made from child-friendly material. The sippy cups, straw bottles and food jars are made from stainless steel both on the interior and exterior. They are non-reactive to all food and beverages. Juices can be used in the sippy cups and straw bottles.
The plastic used in the Foogo products is polypropylene (PP #5) which is considered a safe plastic.
Why are stainless steel bottles and sippy cups better for children than plastic sippy cups?
There is an ongoing debate on the health effects of plastics on children, particularly plastic that contains Bisphenol-A (BPA). Some researchers believe there is a danger in using plastic products, especially for children, while others dispute this claim.
Regardless of whether one side or the other is right, for the moment there is some uncertainty and why not err on the side of caution and use stainless steel bottles when possible?

What is the difference between the sippy cup and the straw bottle?
The Foogo sippy cup has a classic sippy cup design except that the container is insulated and made of stainless steel instead of plastic. Straw bottles are intended for older children as they outgrow sippy cups. The straw bottles are also made of stainless steel, are insulated, but hold almost twice as much liquid. A straw is integrated into the design of the bottle and is covered with a spring loaded top. Pressing a latch causes the cap to open and provides access to the drinking straw.
