Hollett, Inc. prides itself in offering safe, simple, and stylish high chairs and baby products and accessories that “make the dining experience more enjoyable and engaging for everyone.” “Everyone” includes the baby or toddler. “It is our philosophy that a child that is included in the dining experience will be happier, and therefore, less likely to act out in order to seek attention while eating a meal, which is exactly why we do not offer a tray with our high chair products. Sure, we realize that a toddler may make a mess at the table, but generally, it’s only spilled milk,” stated Lisa Hollett, president of Hollett, Inc.
Learning to eat at the table with a group or family helps children succeed in school and life, including attaining better grades, improved mental and physical health, being more knowledgeable and accepting about overall nutrition, enhancing social skills, and encouraging the child to grasp the concept of proper table manners within the home and while dining in a restaurant.
“On the other hand, when a toddler is in a high chair that has a tray, the child may become frustrated because eventually the child realizes a disconnection from the rest of the family and, as a result, feels excluded. Unable to articulate the desire to be included in the family dining experience, the toddler may become so frustrated that a temper tantrum with more than ‘just spilled milk’ is the result,” states Stephen Hollett, CEO of Hollett, Inc. The Hollett™ brand of high chairs are designed to enhance the child’s sense of inclusion, resulting in the entire family having a more fulfilling dining experience at home, away from home, and in restaurants.
Safely accommodating all major brands of infant carriers and easily converting to hold a toddler, the Hollett™ Dual-Mate™ high chair is ideally suited for including newborn babies in the family dining experience because parents can literally use this dual-purpose high chair the same day that the baby arrives home from the hospital. When the baby is able to properly sit upright, the portable and foldable Travel Dual-Mate™ high chair is used as a traditional toddler high chair.
Many young children learn by watching and therefore when the baby or toddler mimics the eating skills of family members, most young children quickly master the necessary motor skills, but also begin to understand, accept, and mimic proper dining etiquette. Additionally, studies have proven that the fulfillment of a baby and/or toddler’s basic desire to belong is greatly enhanced by being included in the family dining experience. Newborns thrive on belonging to a group, a family, and are capable of recognizing the mother’s and father’s voices and make eye contact at a very early age, which only strengthens the baby’s positive association with the family unit.
“The benefits of families eating together have been well documented by various prestigious universities and independent study groups highly encouraging parents to include children of all ages for family meals,” according to the Holletts. The benefits reinforce the fact that family meals play a key role in raising high-achieving, healthy and well-adjusted children. Moreover, these long-term studies that focused on very young children sharing in the family dining experience have proven that children learn to engage in the planning, preparation and enjoyment of food, which creates lasting and positive eating habits, a healthier lifestyle, higher self-esteem, and the overall enhancement of proper physical and social development within children.
Whether it is used to hold an infant carrier or a toddler, the Hollett™ Dual-Mate™ high chair brings the entire family together at the dining table, making the dining experience more enjoyable and engaging for the entire family.
