Then he sits until he does it. And if you can't wait that long (eg you have to go somewhere) then he resumes sitting when you return until he starts writing.

Eta: it can still be a food issue, tho not necessarily sugar. Can you keep a record of what he eats and compare good and bad days? Maybe you'll see a pattern?
