I'm kind of laughing about the hours of masticating. Must be some kind of cooking there!! I'm trying to think of something that doesn't break down in three hours and I'm coming up empty! Are you guys super charring things or steaming or doing raw veg? Might need to let er boil a while for the wee tot perhaps. I see soup in your future.
I don't think you need to make her "sit there and don't move until you swallow that?" but you could say nicely that food needs to stay at the table. She is more than welcome to chew the meat, but she needs to stay at the table. You could be cleaning up and moving on with your night and she can chew away.
Or can you start with the meat and then move to less chewy foods. Offer a snack to people with empty mouths.
This too shall pass!!!
