A dining booster seat is a device that raises the seat level of a standard chair to make it more accessible for shorter people to sit at a table top. While most booster seats are created with young children in mind, there are booster seats for dining on the market that can appeal to shorter adults, older children, or the elderly who may have a hard time getting up from a lower seated position. Safety should be the first consideration. Examine the way the booster is designed to stay on the chair. Compare it to the chair you plan to use it on most often. Squiggly children can fall easily if the booster is not properly secure. Material should be easily cleanable. Foam, plastic, or wood are reliable choices. Fabric is not advisable. Dining boosters get dirty and have to be cleaned more often than a fabric cover allows. The best boosters can grow with your child from the earliest sitting up and eating days to when they are large enough to use an adult chair. If you choose one with a tray, make sure it can go in the dishwasher.
