Itty-bitty dining

When our son arrived, we lived in an itty-bitty house with an itty-bitty table filling an itty-bitty dining room. Our itty-bitty lifestyle ruled out a giant stand-alone high chair. We turned to the Fisher Price Healthy Care Booster Seat as a space-saver, but loved it enough to keep using it even after moving to a larger place.

It straps to most any chair, making it an unobtrusive addition to the room. Three leg settings let you adjust for the height of child and table. Use it as a high chair for a baby, then pop off the seat back to create a booster seat for an older child.

It folds compactly for easy toting to places afar (I know a family who keeps on in their car trunk so they're always prepared). Cleaning it couldn't be easier. No crevices or fabric to hide icky food and each piece is dishwasher-safe. (Or you can hose the whole darn thing down in the backyard after an especially messy interactive meal.)

My favorite thing about the Healthy Care Booster Seat? Because it sits atop a regular dining chair, my baby can have a place at the table with the rest of her family.

It may have a silly name, but it's easy to use, easy to clean and under $30. Gotta love it. is an affiliate
