10 of the best highchairs for babies and toddlers

From highchairs that rock your baby, turn into a chair and table or simply offer a safe seat to eat in, we assess the most effective highchairs based on our reviews, testing and parent feedback

10 best highchair

We all know that mealtimes with little ones can be challenging. There’s the food throwing, the wiggling around, the refusal to wear a bib and, of course, the dreaded post-dinner clean-up operation.

However, having the right highchair on hand can help make the experience a little bit more manageable. To put it simply, highchairs provide a safe place where babies and children can sit when eating, raising them to table height so they can be part of mealtimes, plus giving them a secure place to play when you’re prepping food or in the kitchen. The best ones are easy to clean, have simple but stables straps and a decent-sized tray. Many also now offer additional uses – turning into a newborn rocker (take a look at our best bouncer chairs, swings and rockers) or an older child’s table and chair. For on the go, take a look at our best travel highchairs and booster seats.

Here at MadeForMums we’ve tested more than 90 highchairs, analysed the market and taken into account feedback from parents to create our top recommendations of the best highchairs available. They can help make weaning and feeding a doddle, so the only thing you have to worry about is deciding what to cook!

What to look for when buying a highchair

Age suitability Highchairs are generally suitable from around 6 months, or when your baby can sit up on their own and you begin weaning. However, we’re increasingly seeing a new generation that come with extra padded inserts and recline functions to make them suitable from birth – useful if you have pets or rampaging toddlers around and want to keep your baby off the ground (although obviously you need to be closely monitoring your baby at all times).

Size If your kitchen is on the smaller side, you’ll want to find a compact highchair that can also be folded up and stored away neatly. Some traditional highchairs have flared legs that often cover a large surface area, which is fine if you have a large kitchen but can be a trip hazard if not.

Portability There are plenty of highchair options that are compact and light when folded, so are easy to fit in the boot of your car. And there are some seats which come without legs and are designed to be attached directly to your existing kitchen chairs or table. Many of these even have their own carry case – and are a good option if you regularly eat somewhere where highchairs aren’t available. Just be aware that they don’t provide the same comfort and support offered by the big padded chairs.

Multi-use A lot of highchairs can now be converted into various formats – from traditional highchair to booster seat and child seat – as your little one grows. Of course, these come with a higher price tag, so it’s worth considering whether you want one long-lasting, investment product to do all of these jobs or prefer to buy different, cheaper styles over the years.

Ease of cleaning Mealtimes can get very messy, particularly during weaning, and how easy your highchair is to clean is a key question. Do you want a simple plastic or wood wipe-clean model or are you happy to machine-wash fabric covers? Be aware if there are lots of nooks and crannies for food to get pushed into, and check whether the tray can be easily taken off. Removable straps are also very handy so you can pop them in the washing machine every so often.

Harness Never underestimate a toddler’s ability to wriggle out of highchairs – it’s a well-known fact that little ones would give Houdini a run for his money when it’s time for dinner. For this reason, we recommend choosing a highchair that has a 5-point safety harness, as a lap belt alone may not be secure enough. You can buy an attachable 5-point harness if yours only has a lap belt. The harness should conform to safety standard BS 6684: 1989.

Weight Are you planning on moving your highchair from room to room? If so, weight is something to bear in mind – unless the model comes with wheels.

How did we choose our 10 of the Best?

Our 10 of the Best lists are compiled by qualified and experienced parenting journalists. They rely on a number of sources, including our independent reviews, testing undertaken during the MadeForMums Awards, and feedback from our home testing panel and Top Testers Club. Each year thousands of products are put through their paces by hundreds of parents across the country on behalf of MadeForMums, to ensure we’re bringing you honest and true reviews and recommendations.

When testing these highchairs, we considered age suitability, size, portability, multi-use, ease of cleaning, weight and whether there's a harness.

Our list is not an ordered ranking from 1-10, instead it is a carefully selected group of tried-and-tested products, each of which we believe is best for a different situation or requirement. We don’t just tell you what is best, we help you discover what is best for your family.

When can you start to use a highchair?

With many highchairs your baby needs to be 6 months old with good head and neck control in order to sit safely in the chair. At this young age it’s important to make sure the safety harness fits well, your baby can sit in a supported position and there is enough padding to keep your baby comfortable.

However, a growing number of highchairs now offer full recline and add-on newborn pods – snug, cocoon-like seats to use with babies from birth. These are good features to look out for if you want to have your baby off the ground and close to you when you’re in the kitchen.

How to use a highchair safely

Safety is key when choosing a highchair. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA) has clear safety guidelines for buying and using a highchair:

  • Look for the British Standard EN 14988:2006 safety standard mark
  • Choose a highchair with a 5-point harness
  • Choose a highchair that has a crotch bar or strap to prevent your baby slipping out
  • Look for a highchair that has a removable or adjustable tray so it’s easy to get your baby in and out
  • When using your highchair, position it far enough away from any solid surfaces that your child could kick or push against it to destabilise the chair

And remember, it’s hugely important to make sure your baby is strapped in safely and securely at all times and to never leave your baby unattended in their highchair. Always have them in your sight.

Try Catchy to keep your floors clean

Catchy is the world's first food catching device that attaches to a child's highchair to catch food, cutlery, bowls, plates or anything else your child decides to throw on the floor that would normally stain your carpets or make a mess on your floor. It also saves food from landing on the floor, meaning it can be reoffered to your child again without it picking up germs.

Better yet, it's also made from recyclable material and can simply be wiped down to be used over and over.

The Catchy highchair is compatible with some of the top selling highchair brands such as the IKEA Antilop, Aldi Mamia and Stokke Tripp Trapp (to see a full list visit Highchair Catchy).

Here’s our pick of the best highchairs tested by our reviewers and parents…

1. Tutti Bambini Nova Evolutionary Highchair, £179 without rocker, £239 with rocker

- Best for versatility

tutti bambini nova highchair

Suitable from: Birth (when used with additional newborn rocker) to 12 years | Dimensions: H98xW48xD69cm | Dimensions folded: H42xW52xD47cm | Weight: 11kg | Height settings: Adjustable | Harness: 5-point | Wheels: No

If you’re after a highchair that will adapt with your child, the Nova Evolutionary is a great choice with an impressive 7 different modes: highchair, lowchair, booster seat, toddler chair, toddler rocking chair, play table and chair, and kid’s chair.

More like this

The highchair on its own can be used from 6 months or when your baby is sitting independently. However, if you purchase the Nova Newborn Rocker (£60) alongside it, you can then use it from birth as a rocker and newborn chair, taking the number of different modes the highchair can offer up to an incredible 11.
For comfort, the Nova comes with an ergonomically shaped seat, with a soft padded liner, and a 5-point safety harness. The highchair also comes complete with a lot of extra features including extendable legs, footrest, 3 recline positions and a storage tray, which is perfect for storing wet wipes or toys.

Cleaning the highchair is straightforward – the seat liner is water-repellent and stain-resistant but can also be removed and popped into the washing machine for a deep clean if needed. The detachable plastic tray is also dishwasher-safe, and this is a feature that our MFM reviewer Jaya, mum to a seven-month-old and five-year-old, loved. “The removable plastic cover comes away from the tray in seconds, meaning you can take it to the sink, wash it thoroughly or even put it in the dishwasher,” she said.

Despite its sturdy appearance, the highchair can be stowed away in minutes, by unclipping the legs and attachments. It also comes with its own carry case, making it a great option for travelling or taking over to the grandparents. And, it’s stylish too – with wood effect legs and a sleep, contemporary design.
But it’s the versatility that our testers really loved and how easy it is to switch from one format to another. “The instructions are clear and well labelled, and the different modes I have tried out are all comfortable, sturdy and safe,” Jaya added. “I have no doubts that this product will last the course of the 12 years it promises as it feels extremely well made.”

No wonder it scooped a MadeForMums’ gold award!

Pros: Multiple uses, easy to assemble and change, stylish design
Cons: Expensive, need to buy add-on to use from birth

2. Red Kite Feed Me Combi, £99

- Best for value

Red Kite Feed Me Combi 4 in 1 Highchai

Suitable from: 6 months to 12 years | Dimensions: H97xW61xD65cm | Weight: 9kg | Height settings: Adjustable | Harness: 5-point | Wheels: No

With its sleek Scandi looks and practical, functional design, this highchair ticks a lot of boxes and is a great all-rounder. Like many of the other products in this article, it’s adjustable with 4 different modes and can be used as a standard high chair, a low-feeding chair, a booster seat which can be added to a dining chair, and a high stool for youngsters.

The foam padded seat is comfortable and wipe-able, and the adjustable, generous-sized tray has 3 different positions plus a removable inset tray that makes tidying up easy. MFM home tester Kate, mum to a 13-month-old, complimented the ease with which you can clean the seat. “I particularly like how easy it is to remove the tray and how quick it is to wipe everything clean,” She said. “The pieces are dishwasher friendly which is a bonus and the extra silicone layer for the tray is useful.”

The 5-point harness feels stable and secure and there are anti-slip foot cups on the frame to help prevent it from sliding about. And, perhaps surprisingly, it’s priced at just £87 – making it a very reasonable investment, when compared to some of the other chairs on the market. “I think it rivals some of the luxury brands for highchairs with its design but at a very reasonable price point,” Kate commented. “For the price, the quality and adaptability of this chair is excellent.”
The only small niggles are that the footrest isn’t adjustable, and the construction of the high chair can take a little longer than expected. It doesn’t fold away either – but when it looks as stylish as this, you’ll probably want to keep it out on display!

Pros: Stylish design, multiple uses, easy clean, comfortable
Cons: Footrest is non-adjustable, set up takes a little while, not foldable

Available from: Amazon, Baby and Child Store and Kiddies Kingdom

3. Ikea Antilop, £12

– Best budget buy

Ikea Antilop

Suitable from: 6 months to 3 years (max 15kg) | Dimensions: H90xW56xD62cm | Weight: 3.5kg | Height settings: Fixed | Harness: 3-point | Wheels: No

Chances are you’ve already seen or heard about this popular budget highchair from Ikea. With its incredibly purse-friendly price tag of £12, this is by far the most affordable option in our highchair round-up and one that’s garnered an excellent reputation for good reason.

One of the biggest benefits is how simple it is to clean. The seat and detachable tray are all made from plastic, so it couldn’t be easier to wipe it all down with a cloth and some anti-bac spray. This is something our MFM reviewer Sarah, mum to a 14-month-old daughter, raved about. “The highchair is really easy to clean, which is great because Evie absolutely insists on feeding herself, and most of her cereal/yoghurt/casserole ends up on the chair rather than in her mouth,” she said. “Its simple design means there are no nooks and crannies for bits of food to get trapped in and cleaning takes seconds with an antibacterial wipe.”

The safety straps are also detachable, so if these get a little mucky during mealtime you can pop them in a washing machine to clean them up. However, the straps are only a 3-point lap strap rather than the safer 5-point straps, which is something to be aware of.

It boasts a functional but modern design and is incredibly lightweight, meaning that if you need to move it around the kitchen it’s an absolute breeze. The highchair doesn’t fold down, but the legs can easily be removed it you want to pack it away or take it on holiday with you.

This is a no-frills highchair, so don’t expect different height positions, a reclining function or a footrest, but it does the job at hand – and you can’t argue with the price.

Additional accessories for the Ikea Antilop

Younger babies will benefit from the addition of an inflatable supporting cushion, available from Ikea for an extra £3, plus £3 for the cover, as the seat itself is quite spacious.

The Highchair Catchy (£29.95) is compatible with the IKEA Antilop (use code "CatchyUK" for 10% off for a limited time only).

Pros: Affordable, easy to clean, removable legs, lightweight
Cons: Doesn’t fold, only 3-point harness, 1 sitting position and height, need to buy a supporting cushion for smaller babies

4. Joie Mimzy Snacker 2in1, £75

- Best for small spaces

Joie Mimzy Snacker highchair

Suitable from: 6 months to 15kg (about 4 years old) | Dimensions: H104xW57xD78 | Dimensions when folded: H91xW50xD30 | Weight: 6kg | Height settings: 5 | Recline settings: 3| Harness: 5-point | Wheels: No

If you’re short on space at home, this great-value aluminum highchair is definitely an option to consider. At 6kg, it’s one of the lightest highchairs in this round-up, meaning it can be easily moved from room to room, and the fact it can be folded and stored freestanding sets it apart from many others on the market.

Parents will love its simple one-handed fold function, and it’s something our MFM reviewer Fay, mum to 8-month-old Chester, pointed out as a major plus-point. “One of the key features of this highchair is the fact you can fold it with just one hand, which is super handy if you don’t have much room to keep it up all the time,” she said. “You simply pull a strap on the chair and the whole thing folds up – and you really can do it while holding your baby in the other hand!”

The highchair is flexible and well-designed – with 3 recline settings, 5 height settings, a large adjustable tray with dishwasher-safe insert, an adjustable footrest and even a storage shelf underneath.

The seat features a padded cover and is comfortable and supportive, with the T-bar located on the tray and not the seat – something Fay pointed out as being much more user-friendly for little ones.
Just be aware that the seat cover isn’t quite as easy to clean as all-over plastic seats (our reviewer commented on the fact that food can get encrusted on the material) – although it is machine washable, which is handy. Our home testers also commented on the fact the most upright reclined mode felt a little too reclined.

At only £60, it offers great value for money, and its simple, modern design won’t look out of place in even the most stylish of kitchens.

Pros: Compact, lightweight, modern design, good value, grows with child

Cons: Cleaning can be tricky, too reclined

5. Stokke Tripp Trapp, £199

- Best for older kids

Stokke Tripp Trapp

Suitable from: Birth (when used with the additional newborn set – £79) to adult (max 136kg) | Dimensions: H79xW46xD49cm | Weight: 7kg | Height settings: Seat adjustable | Harness: additional 5-point available to buy | Wheels: No | Awards: Silver – Sustainable/eco-friendly product for families, MadeForMums Awards 2022

Take a scroll through some of the chicest family homes on Instagram and you’re sure to spot a Stokke Tripp Trapp around the kitchen table. Launched in 1972, this iconic piece of Scandi design, made from Beech, Oak or Ash wood, has revolutionised the children’s chair market and become a favourite with parents who don’t want to compromise on style.
The Tripp Trapp is not your average highchair. The whole idea behind the design is that the chair fits right up to your dining table, bringing your baby and child into the heart of your family at mealtimes – as a result, a tray doesn’t come as standard (although you can now buy a Tripp Trapp tray for £39).

The basic chair can be used from when your child can sit unaided, then the seat and footrest can be adjusted to fit them as they grow. The Tripp Trapp can – with the necessary adjustments – even be used by adults.

MFM reviewer Emma, who has a 4-year-old, 2-year-old and 5-month-old, complimented the fact it was easy to adjust, and said it suited each of her children. “I really enjoyed the interaction the Tripp Trapp allowed me to have with my children at the table, and it was nice to see how much they enjoyed it too,” she commented.

Additional accessories for the Stokke Tripp Trapp

Some parents aren’t keen on the open hard wood surround for their young baby, and so you can buy either a plastic baby set (£47) or a baby highchair cushion (£39) along with an additional 5-point harness (£29). If you want to use the Tripp Trapp from birth, you can purchase the newborn set (£79). You get the picture - costs can mount up as you buy the accessories, but it is seen by many as a long-term investment.

The Highchair Catchy (£29.95) is compatible with the Stokke Tripp Trapp (use code "CatchyUK" for 10% off for a limited time only).

Pros: Beautiful design, easy to assemble and adjust, built to last and grow with your child
Cons: Expensive, doesn’t fold, no 5-point harness as standard, need to buy lots of additional products for comfort

6. Peg Perego Tatamia, £275

– Best for newborn babies

Peg Perego tatamia highchair

Suitable from: Birth to 3 years (max 15kg) | Dimensions: H107xW59xD78cm | Dimensions folded: H94.5xW35xD59cm | Weight: 14kg | Height settings: Adjustable | Harness: 5-point | Wheels: Yes

If you’re looking for a multi-functional highchair that grows with your baby, this offering from super-chic Italian brand Peg Perego could be just the thing. The Tatamia Highchair is an innovative 3-in-1 buy, that can be used from birth as a relaxing baby swing or recliner through to the early years as a highchair with adjustable footrest and removable tray, as well as a height-adjustable, 5-point safety harness.

The Tatamia is the ultimate in comfort, with all the luxurious touches you’d expect from the Milan-based brand, including a padded seat and eco-leather finishings (great for a quick and easy wipe clean).

Coming in at 14kg it’s certainly on the heavier side for a highchair, but the addition of the anti-scratch wheels makes it much easier to move around. The highchair can also be folded down, which is a helpful function if you’re short of space. MFM reviewer Carla praised this feature and said, “One of my biggest likes is how easy the Tatamia is to fold and how small and compact it is once folded; no more tripping over high chairs in the kitchen!”

At just under £300, it’s one of the most expensive in our round up, so that’s certainly something to keep in mind. But with 9 different height settings and a removable, dishwasher-safe tray, this highchair manages to tick the boxes for practicality and versatility.

Pros: 3-in-1 product, can be used from birth, luxurious finishings, folds compactly
Cons: Expensive, heavy, bulky

Available from: Uber Kids

7. Maxi-Cosi Minla, £179

– Best for comfort and style

Maxi Cosi Minla 6-in-1 Highchair

Suitable from: Birth to 6 years (max 30kg) | Dimensions: H107xW55xD87cm | Dimensions folded: H120xW55xD30cm | Weight: 11kg | Height settings: 9 | Harness: 5-point | Wheels: Yes (front)

The Minla highchair, part of Maxi-Cosi’s home range, is a super stylish highchair that can see your baby through from birth, as a reclining chair without the tray, to a traditional highchair, booster seat, then child’s stool. With 9 height positions, 5 recline positions and 4 tray positions, there’s plenty of set-ups to make sure your baby or young child is perfectly comfortable. The padded insert ups the comfort factor even more – and this something all our home testers have complimented, remarking how soft and squashy the seat was, and how happy their children were in it.

Although it’s not quite as easy to clean as a traditional all-over plastic highchair, it is still simple to keep mess-free and wipe down. Complimenting the water-repellant cover, MFM reviewer Annabelle said: “It is easy to wipe with a damp cloth. You can also remove the covers by zipping them off at the back and putting them straight in the washing machine, which is a game changer.” The tray is also really simple to remove, which helps with the clean-up operation.

One of the biggest selling points for the Minla is how stylish it looks. If you’re worried about your house being full of garish plastic, this highchair is a chic choice that will work in even the most minimalist home. And if you do need to fold it away this process is quick and simple. As MFM tester Annabelle added, “It does fold fairly neatly so could be stored in a cupboard if needed, or even against the wall when not in use. A number of online reviewers love how the tray clips onto the highchair’s legs, which is a nifty extra feature.”

Pros: Can be used from birth, padded inserts, washable covers, stylish
Cons: Quite pricey, not very compact

8. Chicco Polly Magic Relax, £149

– Best for keeping babies entertained

Chicco Polly Magic Relax

Suitable from: Birth to 3 years (max 15kg) | Dimensions: H106xW53xD85cm | Dimensions folded: H85xW53xD31cm | Weight: 10.5kg | Height settings: 8 | Harness: 5-point | Wheels: Yes

If comfort is your number one priority, let us introduce you to the Chicco Polly Magic Relax. This highchair comes ready to use from birth without having to buy any additional extras and includes a padded ‘reducer’ cushion to cocoon your baby, keeping them super-snug and cosy. Even better, the seasonal baby cushion is double-sided, meaning it can keep your baby cool in the summer and warm in winter.

With 3 reclining positions, 8 height positions and an adjustable footrest and leg rest, it’s a versatile chair that can grow with your baby. MFM reviewer Bethan, mum to a 10-month-old girl, praised the use of the recline function combined with the toy bar. “I love the thought of sitting at the table having a meal with a gurgling baby lying in the reclined seat and enjoying being entertained by the toy bar,” she said.

The Chicco Polly Magic Relax also has a removable tray, so your child can sit with you at the table and join in at mealtimes. Although the highchair is quite big and bulky, it does come with 4 wheels and an easy-fold function meaning it can be quickly moved around or stored away if required. One MFM user said she found the wheels particularly useful post c-section.

It has wipe clean surfaces, and a dishwasher-safe tray. However, it’s not quite as easy to clean as some of the other seats available. “Wipe-clean surfaces are great, but there will always be crumbs in the crevices of fabrics (which wouldn’t happen with the Tripp Trapp, for example). That said, it is very easy to wipe clean and is a dark enough colour to disguise stains,” Bethan added.

Pros: Can be used from birth, comes with wheels, folds down, padded reducer included
Cons: Takes up a lot of space, heavy

9. iCandy MiChair, £260

– Best for contemporary style

icandy michair

Suitable from: Birth (when used with newborn rocker, £150) to 6 years (max 30kg) | Dimensions: H87xW56xD50cm | Weight: 6.6kg | Height settings: 3 | Recline positions: 3 | Harness: 2-point | Wheels: No

If looks are important to you when it comes to buying a highchair, you won’t be disappointed with this offering from luxe British brand iCandy. The MiChair is as beautiful as it is practical and it’s obvious that a lot of care has gone into the design.
The MiChair, which comes with an impressive 10 year warranty, is designed as a 4-in-1 chair that can be used as a baby bouncer, high chair (with or without tray), a low chair for toddlers to use independently, and a rocking chair, so should last well throughout your child’s early years. Just bear in mind, though, that the newborn rocker is sold separately at £150, seat cushions are an extra £50 and the rocking chair blades are £40.

Add this to the fact the basic highchair has a starting price of £260, and it’s clear that buyers are paying more for the contemporary design. But our MFM reviewer Becky said she thinks it’s worth it: “The different functions make the MiChair the perfect chair for a family like mine, with 4 children all at different stages,” she commented. “I think this is good value and the product is stylish, well made and will last for years.

The simple design makes the chair incredibly easy to clean, especially as there are no little corners for food to hide in, and the removable tray can be wiped down no problem. The tray is slightly on the smaller side than others tested – just big enough for a plate and a cup – so while it suits an older child, it might not provide the space you’d like when approaching baby-led weaning.

Our reviewer commented that it was very quick and easy to switch between the different functions, and the rocking chair mode seems particularly appealing to toddlers.

“As soon as it arrived I tested out every possibility and I was really thankful that it was so simple to change the function, taking less than 5 minutes to adjust between them,” Becky said. “When I made the MiChair into a rocker I suddenly seemed to be surrounded by small children all wanting to give it a go! My 3-year-old Archie thought it was the perfect reading chair and once all the babies are out of a highchair I imagine it will be perfect for a quiet corner.”

Pros: Stylish, sturdy, easy to clean, compact
Cons: Expensive, doesn’t fold down, small tray for food, no 5-point harness

10. Infantino Fox Grow-With-Me 4-in-1 Highchair, £109.99

– Best toddler-friendly design

Infantino Fox Grow-With-Me

Suitable from: 3 months to 3 years (max 15kg) | Dimensions: H60xW39xD43cm | Weight: 6kg | Height settings: Fixed | Harness: 5-point | Wheels: Yes

The Infantino Fox Grow-With-Me 4-in1 is another multi-purpose highchair on the market. The recline function means you can use it as safe chair for your baby from 3 months – although it’s not lie-flat so you wouldn’t want your baby dozing in it. It then transforms into a highchair with an optional silicone meal tray from 6 months+, to a booster seat, and then a toddler chair.

MFM reviewer Sarah particularly liked how early she could use the highchair with her 4-month-old daughter: “I loved that my second-born could be in a highchair at 3 months old – that was a real novelty, as I had to wait until my first daughter could sit up before using a highchair.”

The most striking thing about the Infantino offering is the cute fox design – something your toddler will adore, and a great way of encouraging your young child to sit in their highchair with you at the table, but it’s certainly not to everyone’s tastes. If you’re more of a minimalist in terms of interior style, this is not the chair for you!

The chair is made from low density foam, so it’s easy to wipe clean, however this does offer less padding than something like the Chicco Polly Magic Relax, so smaller babies might not be as comfortable as they could be. The food try and mat are also easily removed and dishwasher-safe – a major plus point.

It’s worth keeping in mind that the highchair legs do flare out quite a bit – great from a sturdy, safety point of view, but certainly a feature that takes up a bit of room. It also can’t be folded away and even the booster seat itself is relatively bulky.

Pros: Grows with your child, suitable from 3 months, easy to clean
Cons: Not as cushioned as other options, doesn’t fold, not very upright for weaning babies
