My 16 month old takes great pleasure in throwing food off of the highchair! Help??

What do I do? It's getting ridiculous. I'll put a few pieces of food on her highchair tray, and she'll take a bite, then toss the rest on the floor! She thinks it's a game, and I'm not in the mood to play.

  • Don't pick it up and give it back to her otherwise they feel like its a game. Its like playing catch with a ball. Once its on the floor she needs to know that she doesn't get it back. At least wait 5 minutes, even if she cries, to give it back to her and see if she understands.
