This Chicco Pocket Snack Booster Seat is my favorite (and happens to be the one we own). We first purchased it because it straps to a normal seat and takes up significantly less space in our dining room than a free standing high chair. The Chicco Pocket folds up, the tray attaches and the buckles can be easily adjusted to create the perfect carrying strap.
The Chicco Pocket’s small tray makes it easy to clean and it can even be put in in the dishwasher. Perhaps one of my favorite features is that the tray and seat height can be adjusted to three different settings. The seat was made for children up to 50 pounds which means it could last to your child’s preschool years!
The First Years On the Go Booster Seat is super affordable, compact and easy to carry. The bottom of the seat inflates to provide a comfortable place for your child. It is recommended that it only be used for children 9 months and up. It doesn’t have a tray but it is a perfect way to contain your little one during mealtime.6 Best Portable High Chairs For All Your Family Travel Destinations Click To Tweet

Like the First Years Booster Seat it has no tray but its ability to fit inside a diaper bag or carry on make it one of my top choices for travel.
The Fisher Price Healthy Care Booster Seat is most well known because it is the most bang for your buck. It easily folds up and includes a shoulder strap for convenient carrying. While this may not be the best choice for long distance travel is is a great choice for visit friends or family nearby. The Healthy Care Seat is easy to clean and is suitable for children 6 months to 3+ years.
The Inglesina Fast Table Chair attaches to the table tops and underside of the table to create a secure place for your baby or toddler to eat. It folds flat which makes it easy to transport. The cover comes off and is completely washable. The max weight for the Inglesina is 37 pounds making it a booster seat that is useful for families with children 6 months to approximately two years.
The Summer Infant Pop and Sit is not only suitable for Summertime! Use it at a fall picnic, camping trip, soccer game, or even just for backyard play. The Pop and Sit is perfect for traveling outdoors because it works similarly to your traditional camping chair. It is lightweight and sets up quickly. Additionally the Pop and Sit is totally versatile and comes with straps that you can attach to most chairs. This booster is perfect for indoor and outdoor traveling adventures!
