Right now, I pretty much just dump their food on their tray. I've tried giving it to them on their plate, but they either toss the whole plate on the floor or pick it up and shove their face in it (of course causing all the food to fall down the front of them). At what age did your LO realize that the plate stays put? And adding on to that, at what age do they start using spoons/forks? I've tried spoons, too, and they don't quite get it.
