Kate, mom to 7 year old Djuna and 4 yr old Alden. Missing our good friend Hal the cat who died June 2, 2010
I don't know... my experience is food throwing=not hungry. I would say "looks like you're not hungry now. Maybe later" and then take her out of her high chair and let her play. She'll eat when she's hungry.
Tiny portions. Tiny tiny portions. Like start with a bite or two or three at a time. It can work wonders to put an end to food-throwing. Perhaps toddlers and babies get overwhelmed with too much food in front of them? I'm not sure, but I do know that only putting a very limited amount in front of them can really help. And the best thing is that if they do end up throwing it it's only a little bit, and then (like the pp said) you can say "oh I guess you're not hungry now. Let's get you down out of the highchair." End of story.
