Help! My 16 month old is sticking food in her EARS!

My 16 month old daughter started sticking her fingers in her ears a week ago - for fun to feel the sensation, no tugging, no pain manifested etc, so probably not an infection...Then she started doing it a couple of days ago while she was eating meatballs - with the food on her she's sticking mac and cheese up her ear tonight! Pretty soon we'll have to take her to the doctor and have her ears cleaned out so she doesn't get infected! Anyone else dealt with this issue? She is super strong, large and willful....(and wonderful), not sure if putting a headband or a hat on her while she eats will help....Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!!
