Re: Please remind me that this phase will pass (toddler throwing food on floor)

If my DD (21m) starts throwing food, I will then feed it to her (which she usually doesn't like), instead of letting her have it on her tray or in her bowl to feed herself.

I don't stop the meal once she starts throwing because we have issues with getting enough food into her, and she's always delighted when mealtime is over. So, yeah, it would be a reward for her to be set down early!
Wife to my supportive DH and WAHM to DD Nora (06/10), DS Emerson (07/12), and baby #5 (due 5/16) and my precious babies in heaven: Bennet (died 8/15 at 12 months) and Lucy (miscarried 7/15).
