Ds, 15 months, doesn't want to eat much most of the time so I employing a tactic of just putting the food in front of him and letting him get on with it.

We are eating in the living room on the coffee table because until o figure out a way of stopping him from rocking his chair back without causing tantrums its easier this way.

Anyway, lunch today was carrots, broccoli and sweetcorn, fish and wedges. Ds ate a couple of sweetcorn then proceeded to throw it all about the room. I must say I admire the fact he had absolutely no inhibitions about doing so and is now eating random bits of sweetcorn after inserting them into various toys.

However I must remember to get dh to reach the carrot I saw roll under the tv stand....

Magneto well yes, he's eating some of it.

As for the dining table, would sitting him on a cushion on one of the dining chairs help? You can get one of those dining chair harnesses so he won't fall off.

Think you've got the right idea in ignoring the flinging and praising him when he's eating though.

Ha DD is 14 months and the same...lunch is always a non-event here - she has a few bites at the most. It's a wonder they grow isn't it....but somehow they do.

ds was exactly the same at that age. It gets better, especially now he is old enough (3) to be motivated by sticker charts.
