Sipahh Straws: Review & Giveaway

Including essential nutrition along with variety and novelty is the key to developing good eating habits in younger children. With #babyT, we followed baby led weaning and ensured that he began family food once he started solid foods. And like most parents today we followed the ‘no salt’ and ‘no sugar’ principle till he turned 1. Now that he is 1.5 years young he truly does eat all types of homemade food. This includes all flavours – sweet, spicy & savoury. ‘Anything in moderation is fine’ is my mantra and I am happy that he is not a fussy eater. My pain point however was MILK. And before I begin my Sipahh Straws review I want to share what the current scenario in our household is like.

BabyT cannot have animal milk & other dairy products due to a dairy sensitivity and it was important to introduce some form of liquid nutrition in order to add calcium and also wean him gently. Although I found my solution in Soy Milk, I had a problem on hand because I was not sure how to make it exciting for him to drink it. Flavoured Soy Milk contains a lot of artificial sweeteners and flavourings. I was sure I did not want to give him that. Enter Sipahh Straws. 🙂

Sipahh Straws is an Australian company started by a father to make drinking milk more exciting for his children. And like most parents he was turned off by the amount of artificial colourings, preservatives and sugar that most children’s milk flavourings had. Even the regular powders we have grown up on contain scarily high quantities of sugar. So Peter, the father behind Sipahh  introduced these milk flavouring straws which promised to let children enjoy the goodness of milk as part of a balanced diet – with less sugar and no artificial colours or preservatives. The first Sipahh Straws review from his children was a big Yes.

The Story of Sipahh

The Sipahh Straws are hollow straws with an inner compartment where the flavour granules are present. There are two filters on either end that allow milk to pass through the flavoured granules and acquire the flavour and voila!! You have flavoured milk in the mouth.

The granules are made of Cassava or Tapioca (yumm I love tapioca chips) and dissolve completely in the milk as you drink it up.  No harmful chemicals & preservatives here.

Now my Sipahh Straws review would be incomplete and unfair if I did not tackle the elephant at the dining table. 🙂 What about the sugar content? Isn’t sugar bad for babies & children? Sure it is. And avoidable too. But did you know even if you are not adding sugar to your foods, you are actually consuming a lot of hidden sugars everyday. Take a look at this chart which shows how much sugar is present in some of these daily foods you and your children may be consuming.

As for Sipahh Straws each straw contains less than 2 gms of sugar which is half teaspoon of sugar. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends that children up to 10 year’s age should receive no more than 13 gms of added sugar per day. Compared to the so-called health and energy milk flavouring powders Sipahh Straws is a clear winner.

Sipahh Straws comes in 10 different flavours. They have exotic names such as Fruit Salad Swirl, Lamington Dream (a quintessential Australian cake), Hello Marshmallow, Luscious Strawberry, Coco – Bean Chocolate. #BabyT tried the Luscious Strawberry and Hello Marshmallow. He loved them both. I will confess I was too tempted and snuck in a Fruit Salad Swirl when babyT wasn’t looking.  AND I have to admit I loved the flavour and the concept. The milk acquires a very subtle flavour. The first sip was a bit too sweet, but as I drank some more of the milk the sweetness was well adjusted and just about right.

And how convenient are Sipahh Straws? You just need to RIP – DIP – SIP. It’s as easy as that to have flavoured milk. You can use Sipahh Straws with cold or even room temperature milk.  No peeling, chopping, mixing, grinding, spooning or stirring – all while a HANGRY (Adj:/ informal. Bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger) toddler is gnawing at your ankles. Sipahh Straws 1 – 0 Other milk flavouring powders. 

Sipahh Straws Review Ratings by MommyT:
  • Novelty – 5/5 This is such a cool concept. Children & adults alike enjoyed the Sipahh Straws in our house.
  • Taste – 5/5 So many unique flavours to choose from
  • Convenience – without a doubt 5/5. Just have to Rip the cover, dunk and you have flavoured milk.
  • Cost – 3.5/5 a bit steep if I consider that you will need one straw per day. A pack of 10 costs Rs. 150, a pack of 40 costs Rs. 520.
  • Availability – 3/5 We ran out of our straws (all the grownups hadone, humph!) and I had a tough time locating a local store that stocked them. Found them on Amazon and got next day delivery on it. <3

    These look so yumm that I would really really regret it if I didn’t give these a try. And the names ♥♥♥. Those cute names increase the desirability by a factor of ×10. We would love to have a sip through fruit salad swirl and coco bean chocolate. Also we have followed all the steps on insta.

  14. This is so cool… So I actually did not know about the granules. I knew these were milk flavouring straws but never knew how it actually works. You have explained it nicely and that close up pic of granules is what made it clear to me! 🙂
