Even if you still don’t know which method you’re going to use to feed your baby (6 months fly), the high chair can be very helpful and practical. And there are as many models on the market as food combinations in the kitchen. But non-toxic wooden high chairs have the undeniable benefit of lowering your baby’s exposure to toxic chemicals. Also, coincidence or not, the chemical-free wood high-chairs for sale in the US market have such a modern design. So, for health reasons or interior design purposes, here is a list of the best non-toxic wooden high-chairs for your baby, toddler, and big kid! You’ll find a thorough selection of atoxic high chairs made of 100% wood or mixed materials. They are all easy to clean, ergonomic, safe, and sturdy to give you good support during eating time and peace of mind afterward!
As we always state here, there is no such thing as “must-have” furniture for babies. Always remember the Nordic newborns who sleep in boxes provided by the government and they are all fine. The non-toxic wooden high chairs in this post are on the higher price tag because they use more expensive materials like natural wood, are BPA-FRee, Low Voc, etc. Also, some pieces are handcrafted in Canada or made in Europe, where the workforce is paid more fairly. Just know that as practical and healthier as a nontoxic wood high chair can be, it won’t get your toddler to eat all the greens all the time! Some days you’re gonna win, and other days you’re gonna lose, and that’s ok! ?

ND54 High Chair, Carl Hansen & Son
Age limit: From sitting on their own up to 3 years old | Solid Wood Beech | Non-Toxic Lacquer

The ND54 high-chair was designed by the iconic Danish designers Nanna and Jorgen Ditzel when they had twins! It’s a classic staple from the best original mid-century modern Danish design that Carl Hansen & Sons put back on the market in 2020. If the Dietzel name rings a bell is because, among other things, they are the creators of the timeless Hanging Egg Chair.
As you can see from the iconic B&W picture, the Ditzel twins were toddlers. So if you prefer extra support for your little foodie, get the matching wood backrest.

Should you invest all that money on a non-toxic wooden high chair?
If you can afford it debt-free, go for it! If you are looking for chemical-free furniture to lower your baby’s exposure, that’s an undeniable benefit. Besides, most wooden high chairs have an outstanding design. Therefore, not only they will be highly ergonomic for your child, but they will not be an eye-sore in your house.
Most moms want to give the best for their kids, and that’s love, care, and respect, not high-end furniture that will put you in debt and take your peace of mind. Seriously, it’s not worth your peace of mind! And I speak from experience. I’m all about healthy eating and my niece ate on a hands-down high chair from day one and she eats very well.
That being said, it’s very important to state that no matter how amazing or high-end the wooden high-chair is it will not be determinant to get your toddler to eat all those veggies all the time. It takes time, patience, and it won’t be perfect because we are all humans, and that’s humanity’s nature. Yeah, I said it. We make a living out of some products we feature here (not all), but we can’t stand the idea of tricking people into buying what they don’t need or can’t afford. I’m not denying all the research on proper posture, no screen time, or any other practices you have read about. All that I’m saying is: buy whatever brings joy into your life but don’t feel like a loser if you can’t afford a $500 highchair. ♡
