Baby mealtimes are a challenge. Which high chairs are sturdy and safe, and easy to clean? The CHOICE lab reviews high chairs to Australian standards, and conducts real-life cleaning tests on them, too.

Safety is a vital part of our testing. We test each high chair against the Australian Standard for high chairs, AS 4684:2009. The standard also requires compliance with at least one of the international standards, so we refer to the European Standard EN 14988. We also see how easy they are to use and clean.

Our testing includes:

  • a side and rear stability test to see if the high chair will topple over
  • assessing strength of construction
  • checking for finger pinching or entrapment risks
  • checking whether the chair comes with a five-point harness and adequate side and back protection
  • checking whether the locking mechanisms are secure enough to prevent a child falling out.

You've told us it's important that a high chair is easy to clean, so our interactive comparison tool helps you filter by cleaning score. You can also check whether the high chair has useful features such as a tray or castors. CHOICE Recommended high chairs pass all important safety tests and have a five-point harness.

    Passed key safety tests

    Expand to view more details.

    Key safety tests include stability, durability and security of the frame locking mechanism. In some cases, we find minor issues (such as finger entrapment in a hard to reach area) which may still make the high chair worth considering. Those models still pass the key safety tests. Some failures are rated as very minor - a model with only very minor failures can still be recommended.

      Ease of cleaning score

      Expand to view more details.

      We check how easy it is to clean a range of children's foods from the high chair seat, harness and tray (where available). Scores are then averaged. Ease of cleaning makes up 30% of the overall score.
