Throwing tantrums to get food

My boy is 8 months old. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this.

We are practicing BLW and he's been on solids for about 2 months now and does surprisingly well. There aren't many foods that are off-limits to him and when we eat, he eats too, as long as he's in his high chair.

Lately we've been running into a few problems. He thinks that because I'm drinking a soda, he should be allowed to drink soda too (soda is an "off-limit food"). He gets very very angry and reaches and cries when he doesn't get what he wants.

This is my first baby. He's still so little and I don't know how to discipline a child that can not talk. I don't know what he understands and whether or not I should let him be angry or share with him. He's started doing this at daycare as well. One of the bigger kids had a piece of toast today and he threw a little fit because he didn't have a piece of toast.
