Straws and ingesting plastic

This has been bothering me for a while - plastic straws. Last night we went out for a family dinner, and as usual, my 3-year old got a plastic cup with straw for her water. (Even when she gets a glass, there is a straw). Kids love straws, right? But she spent most of the evening chewing on it until it was a mangled mess, despite our reminding her we don't chew on straws. Our kids are ingesting enough plastic without adding to it with this. And we certainly don't need more plastic waste on the planet!
