Five Cool High Chairs For Meal Times

When a friend mentioned she was on the hunt for a stylish high chair, I took up the challenge. She's got a contemporary kitchen, very minimalist and tidy, so she wanted something that would fit in. Obviously safety was a big consideration too.

The Little Helper FunPod Highchair (Mothercare, £159.99) is a clever long-term solution, as it can be used for babies, toddlers and older children thanks to its multiple layers. At that price, you'd expect it to be multi-purpose really!

I'm not entirely sure it will fit in with her particular style though, due to the bulky nature of it. These other options below are compact enough to not intrude on too much space, fit in with her monochrome style and ensure your baby is safe whilst eating.

What do you think? Do you have any alternative suggestions?
