Talking with you mouth full

I was wondering if anyone had any tips on teaching kids not to speak with food in their mouth. My son is 4 1/2 and as we all know at that age they talk a mile a minute, problem is, we can't get him to swallow his food before speaking, hoping to learn some tricks from some moms who may have had the same problem.

Well mine is only 6 months but I have a step daughter and she is 3. She talks a lot too. We make sure we tell her to eat all her food before doing anything else If they are talking then they to interrupt them and ignore what they talk about. If you tell them that you will not pay attention to what they are saying until they finish up then they will be motivated to finish faster to talk to you. Well that is my opinion.... I may or may not be right
