What do you do at mealtimes when baby doesn't like going into his highchair?

My son will sometimes cry when I put him in his highchair, even though he is hungry and wants to eat.

Some kids see it as being sentenced to "the chair" (pun intended).  Turn the chair into a fun thing.  Use the chair for entertainment like finger painting or playing blocks.  You can change the scenery as well.  Feed him in front of a patio door or, if it is warm, outside.  

If he sees the chair as a prison he will not like it.  The same applies to bedrooms, make it their retreat instead.
