Kitchen Safety for Parents

Kitchen safety for new parents

Welcome to the Kitchen Safety Project, an initiative brought to you by RoSPA and Fairy Non Bio. If you’re a new or expectant parent, we’re here to help you create a safe and secure kitchen environment for your little ones.


Why kitchen safety matters

The kitchen, often called the heart of the home, is also a hotspot for potential hazards, particularly for young children. From sharp objects to hot surfaces, various risks can pose a threat. We want to improve kitchen safety awareness among expectant parents and parents of infants, ensuring a secure environment for all families.

We did some research with YouGov which gave us some great insights into the attitudes and behaviour of new and expectant parents on kitchen safety. The main things parents told us about kitchen safety were:
