    Yep ds does this too. I try not to make a big deal about it but doesn't make much difference. Once he's done it a few times I just take the food away as it's usually if he isn't hungry or doesn't want what he was given.

    As for eating off the floor, I don't let ds sit down there and eat off the floor but I do pick it up and give it back to him when we are at home.

    My floors are pretty clean but honestly, they eat dirt when outside so what's the point in stressing too much. Obviously when we are out in public or somewhere else I don't as I can't vouch for how clean the floor is.

    My DS is 30 months and will still occasionally do this. I've figured out it's because either he's seen something else he wants more and starts asking for it (usually treat type food) or because he's not hungry (he's eaten some first). If it's the first reason I keep persisting and I do pick the food up thats landed on the surrounding table or chair and give it back to him. The latter happens less often now as I've started to figure out how large his portions should be.

    DS is 2.5yrs and still does it occasionally. It has got a lot better by just ignoring it. Now it's putting his feet on the table!!! I don't think we'll ever have a nice meal time. Oh and he would rather starve than eat something he doesn't want so that old wives tale doesn't work here.

    My 16 month old was doing this and it didn't matter how I responded; if I ignored she did it again, if I growled she laughed. I ended up taking her plate of food away until she asked for it (she signed "eat" or pointed) then I would give it to her. If she dropped food again I took the plate away again. She rarely does it now except for attention (when I am doing something else while she is eating).

    Our boy (1.5yrs) doesn't usually throw food but he does sometimes take it off his plate and wipe or spread it around the table quite wildly. When he does that I do as quoted above. I just take his plate away and leave one or two bites of food in front of him.

    My creature does this at 13 months.. Try one bit at a time..

    Set rules before meal times, if he breaks them, remove him
    He will come back.. We sit in our chair and eat.. If you throw your food.. You leave..
    It's draining.. It should work

    Hilarious what a little cutie. Aren't the ikea chairs so easy to clean I love them. Had a fancy padded one with lots of straps etc and took forever to clean.
