An alternative to a big plastic mat is a big hairy mat. I highly recommend having a border collie situated directly underneath a high chair!

Ok, so what do I do if he throws the spoon and tries to tip over the bowl? I have a feeling this is what he'll do.

Yes he will absolutely do that! I stopped using a bowl at this age - just put the food in his tray on his high chair - yes it's messy but they are toddlers , their brain is working overtime and they need to feel and touch the food! It will take a few weeks but I promise he will come around!
my SIL is a naturopath and she believes at this age their "cave man" instinct starts kicking in as in they naturally want to protect themselves so anything that goes into their mouths will be studied and anything new will be rejected the first few times , which is why a lot of parents start noticing "fussiness" at this age plus this is another reason why a lot of people beleive its imperative to feed your child a huge variety of whole finger foods before they are 18 months -2 because if they don't recognize it they won't try it

To stop the plate throwing we have a Heinz sticky plate. A disk attaches by suction to the high chair and the bowl screws onto the disk. I bought mine from Woolies.

DD has refused spoon feeding for a long time, I'm going to guess from 9 or 10 months. It makes for messy mealtimes, so I usually go for finger foods over purées or anything too mushy.
