Help - my 15 month old insists on throwing food off his highchair tray. He's barely eating enough to keep a baby sparrow alive, and then this! Sometimes, he doesn't even taste it - just sticks out his little arm and drops it... so I don't think it's even a matter of liking the food or not. We firmly tell him no, squeeze his little hand and then tell him if he does it again, he's done and we put him in the crib (no toys) for a little while. We then try it again, but usually only manage to get another few morsels into him before he starts up again. He's not talking yet (but has been walking since 8 months) and I know he's frustrated with not being able to communicate. Additionally, we have a 2 week old newborn which just adds to the frustration of this child. Help??
