Try eating with him (so everyone in your family is eating at the same time, if possible, at the table together) and giving him his own utensils (if you haven't already) or letting him pick them out at the store. You can also get him a little involved in the making of the food (this sometimes help)



And in the end, tell him if he throws a tantrum, he's done eating, and take it away when he does. He can understand this at his age. Consistency is key. This doesn't mean he'll never throw a tantrum again (my two year, 2 month old still does, but when he does, he is done with his meal).

He won't starve. If he's playing, he's not eating, So let him go play instead of both of you getting angry. :D
