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!
