15 month old dropping food on floor

Anyone have suggestions regarding how to handle my toddler dropping food on the floor? We don't give him much at a time - usually 1 or 2 pieces of food. He doesn't throw it, just drops it. Thanks!

Haha my ten month old does this all the time....I think its much funnier than her dad. With my first I learned there isn't anything that can be done. My daughter eats a few pieces throws a few pieces and the viscous cycle continues.

That's what they do. It's funny. They love to drop small toys and you pick them up so they can drop them again. Keeps ya lol-ing for hours.
Bill Cosby said he had a solution for this figured out. He fed the baby breakfast in the highchair and lunch on the floor under the highchair.
Maybe tie a small toy to the highchair so he can drop it, then pull it back up. That might amuse him.
