Something I have learnt from my good OT (occupational therapist) & physio friends, is to ‘ideally’ have your child’s feet supported when sitting on a chair (including high chairs).
You can be sure without a foot rest, your child will fidget more and have less attention for their meal. I know I never like sitting on a wall or bar stool for long with no foot rest..
The trick is to find a foot rest at the right level to ensure their feet sit flat and their knees and hips are also at right angles. Any other thoughts/foot rest ideas most welcome! Yes, OTs and physios too.
Ps ours is a storage container, that doubles as a block container 🙂
