Your family sits down to dinner and your toddler decides after 2 bites its more fun to throw food on the floor rather than eat it. Obivously said toddler isnt hungry. The reason I am asking is we go through this one or two times a week with my 20 months old. Now I know you are supposed to look at food intake over the course of a week vs a day so I dont sweat her not eating dinner but I want to know what you do when your toddler does this? How often does your toddler do this?
Do you offer a snack later?
Do you try and feed them their dinner later?
Last night I gave her some sunflower seeds later (that she dumped) and a granola bar that she ate two bites of. But she did drink a big cup of milk before bed and woke up asking for milk at 5 am.
Suggestions. Thoughts. Comment away. What is typical in your house?
