Hi, I want to buy an Stainless Steel drink bottle for my kids but I'm wondering which is the best one to buy?  I've seen them with plastic sipper tops which I know will wear and I'd be interested in one where I could easily replace the tops when the kids chew on them - is there a brand that is more environmentally friendly and provides replacement lids?  My kids are 6 and 3 so I know they'll get worn.

ETA: Aluminium/aluminum??
Edited again to refer to Stainless Steel bottles.

Stainless is much better than aluminium.  There's plenty around, just check the label.

My daughter has been using her Cheeki for almost 4 years. Still going strong.

Further question.. would there be one (with replaceable lids/caps) that would fit into your standard Smash lunchbox bottle holder section?  (I may be up too late as I can't think of the right word for things!)

My boys had Sigg's that lasted for years (they're still fine just a bit dinted and scratched) and they fit in the drink bottle bit as do most of the the bottles you can get.  I'm pretty sure Smash even do a stainless drink bottle now.

I definitely felt like the metal bottles seemed too big to fit in the bottle holder on the Smash lunchbox.  I'll check when I'm in the supermarket next.

We use the stainless steel and BPA free drink bottles from Kathmandu. Good value and hard wearing.
They have an online sale at the mo too.

We have Sigg water bottles and they're brilliant! Very durable and easy to replace the tops of.

I have purchased them from Big W and Office works sometimes have them.
