Introducing the Nibble and Rest Messi™ Food Catcher, your trusty companion for those delightful but oh-so-messy mealtimes. As a family owned business, it has always been our mission to make mealtimes easier and hassle free for other young families. Hence, our tagline: Supporting Tiny Humans for Mealtime Success! 

The Messi™ food catcher  is our latest clever accessory that easily attaches to your child's Ikea Antilop highchair, and it's not just any accessory – it's a creation by parents, for parents. Get ready for the mealtime magic! It's an absolute essential for baby-led weaning and introducing solids. The ingenious design works its charm by catching food spills from all angles – be it the sides or the front of your highchair.

How does it work?

The Nibble and Rest Messi™ Food Catcher attaches to your Ikea Antilop Highchair by simply sliding onto the four legs of your highchair and connecting at the back. 

Benefits included: 

Rescues Your Food: Crafted from non-toxic, BPA-free, PVC-free, and food-safe materials, Messi™ lets you safely retrieve those fallen bites (that would otherwise go to waste) and offer them to your baby again or save them for later adventures!

Protects Your Floors: Bid adieu to ruined carpets and stained floorboards! Our Messi™ food catcher heroically captures dropped food, sparing your precious flooring.

Saves Your Time (and Physio!): No more crawling on your hands and knees for cleanup duty, and no more mealtime stress when your little one decides to experiment with gravity. Sit back, relax, and savour worry-free mealtimes with this ingenious food catcher!

Easy to Clean: Messi™ is a trooper, built to be waterproof, stain-resistant, smooth edges, no crevices for food to get stuck thus super easy to clean! Install it once, leave it in place, and a quick wipe with a damp cloth is all it takes to prepare for the next meal. Should you feel like a deep clean is required, a spray with a garden hose or a rinse in the shower will do the job thoroughly. 

User-Friendly: Simple to install and stays out between uses. The bowl design collects mess at the base of the food catcher making it a quick an easy clean up. It also eliminates tripping hazards caused by highchair legs and takes up minimal additional space. Move around your home effortlessly with this versatile food catcher.

Durable Material: Made from the same tough material as most highchair trays, Messi™, our highchair food catcher, can handle whatever your little one dishes out.

Quick Installation: Slide onto the four legs of your Ikea Antilop highchair and then connect the tab at the back of the food catcher to create the food catching bowl.

Aesthetically Pleasing Design: One of the standout features of the Nibble and Rest Messi™ Highchair Food Catcher is its unique oval/almond shape. This design is not only visually appealing but also serves a practical purpose. The shape allows for maximum coverage, ensuring that even the messiest eaters won't be able to escape its catchment area, the rounded edges also help to avoid leg scrapes and food getting lodged in corners- making it easier to clean. Unlike traditional food catchers, which often have limited coverage, this one covers a wider area, significantly reducing the mess that falls onto the floor.

Each Messi has a unique QR code that can be scanned for assembly instructions. If you are having any trouble with your installation, please email and our friendly team will be able to assist you.

All of our video assembly instructions (and troubleshooting videos) can also be found on our Youtube channel.

Please note: The Ikea Antilop Highchair is not included.


Install a footrest that will adjust and fit your child perfectly as they grow in only a couple of minutes!

Woodsi Footsi installation 

- Roll o-rings provided up each of the front legs. Position at the approximate height you would like the footrest to sit

- Once you have positioned the O-rings place the footrest on top and adjust the o-rings to hold the footrest secure


Footsi installation 

Step 1) Install the suction lock on a flat part at the back of the highchair

Step 2) Loop the Velcro straps (left and right) to each of the corresponding front high chair legs. Sling strap at back of Footsi onto the suction hook, now secured to the high chair. Adjust strap length to suit your child’s height ensuring the feet are 90 degrees so their feet are flat.

It is all setup and working a treat.

I won't send any photos, but the product is awesome. It's really helping us keep our floors clean. It's also so easy to wipe up food because of the concave shape.


Good product

I purchased the footrest and Messi food catcher. They came with separate instructions which resulted in me having to redo the assembly process THREE times before getting it right. Safe to say I did not enjoy that part but I am enjoying not having the need to mop my floor everyday.

Messi high chair food mat

I bought this for my niece who had her first born son he’s 8 months old so you can imagine most of the food ends up on the floor she absolutely loves the food mat nothings on the floor anymore

  • IKEA Antilop

Great design

I previously used a similar product from another brand but found that it was hard to clean due to it's square shape which had corners where small food scraps would get stuck. The design of the Messi is far superior and easy to clean due to it's concave shape so all the food scraps can be easily swept into the middle and has no hard to reach corners. Highly recommend this product.

Really easy install and keeps floors clean

Loving this already only after 1 week, keeps the mess (Messi) free and the shape of it means can be easily wiped, food doesn't get stuck in corners. Go team! Abby x
