Hiya everyone, was wondering if you guys could give me some suggestions here. My LO is 15mo, and I've been trying to get her use to using a plate. However lately, she's rejecting it completely but dumping her food onto her high chair tray, and throwing the plate. Then she continues to just play with her food or throw it too. I thought perhaps she was getting bored with the food because I tend to do the same thing every day unless were out, etc. Yesterday and today we tried something different and we got the same throwing/playing and even yelling. I thought maybe she doesn't like what were giving her? Maybe it's a behavioral thing? Im kinda at a lost here, and Im a FTM so Im new at this. One thing I did try yesterday is when she was playing with her waffles I took them away. I put them in her snack cup and put it at her play area and sure enough she actually ate them while playing. I didnt like the idea of taking her breakfast away especially since she might be hungry, but she didn't cry about it so maybe she was full.
Anyone having similar issues or have any advice on how to make meal time a calmer event?
