A Fundamental Necessity, The Portable Booster Seat

Eating out. One of America’s favorite past time. Let’s face it, after a long day of work, sometimes you just need to treat yourselves out to a nice dinner. Before, the children were around, it was a lot easier; you could eat anything and more importantly, anywhere. Now with the little ones, you have to take other things into consideration:

  • Loudness
  • Lighting
  • Decoration
  • Kids Menu
  • Order fulfillment Speed
  • High Chair Availability
  • Crayons

Most of the time, restaurants try to accommodate children best they can and will have each item above taken into consideration. However, as parents, there are just some things that you cannot leave to chance. One of those, is the cleanliness of the restaurant provided high chairs.

Yes, you would assume that the chairs are thoroughly cleaned after each use, but in actuality, a study conducted in October 2012 states that restaurant high chairs have more bacteria than a toilet seat.

Don’t panic!  Education is the key and as long as you are aware, you can be prepared to handle the chore of eating out with the kids.

I say, if you can help it, don’t use restaurant-provided high chairs/booster seats. With that in mind, I would like to feature a very useful product that my sister loves to use for my nephew and niece. This is, the portable booster seat.

With the portable booster seat, you can be assured that your child is comfortable and safe.  Portable booster seats are small, light, portable, and easy to clean. Reinforced by adjustable straps, you trust your child is in good hands.

Below are a few of my favorites:
