@monnie is your DD still eating in a high chair?
If not you could put her back in one and tell her it is because she is acting like a baby at mealtimes?
If she is, could you get a mini table and chairs (they're like $15 at IKEA) and tell her if she starts to behave she can pick a cushion/tablecloth/special bowl or something and start to eat dinner there like a big girl?

I've not used time outs for any of my kids - well, I tried it with DD and it didn't fit our family and then someone recommended a book about guidance discipline called "Children Are People Too" by Dr Louise Porter but I think the name of it has changed now and that really became my bible.
I hope you can find some strategies that work for you xx

A child will always eventually stay in time out. You just have to preserve. My daughter got off time out the first time I put her in it, over 50 times. Each time I just quietly without a word out her back on it. It takes consistency and sticking with it no matter how long it takes. After 35 minutes of getting off time out, she eventually sat there for 2 minutes and now, as soon as she's on time out, she'll cry, but she won't move from that chair.
