LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) –Parents may want to think twice before putting their child in a restaurant high chair, now that a new study finds the amount of bacteria on restaurant high chairs is significantly higher than public toilets. The research was conducted by experts at Microban, a company that makes antibacterial products.

After swabbing thirty high chairs, researchers found the bacteria levels varied from restaurant to restaurant, but the bugs they found were bad, including e-coli and staph, even on some chairs that looked clean. So, researchers say parents should take it upon themselves to clean high chairs before their kids use them so the only thing going in their mouth is their food!
