Eat the Food? No! Eject it Instead!
I have 3 boys and it’s interesting to see each of them go through similar stages and reactions. Righ now, we are dealing with the “Eject Food” stage with our almost 2 year old. If he doesn’t like something, there is no politely spitting it into a napkin or putting it in the trash or even spitting it in the toilet!
Nope! It doesn’t matter if you’re in a restaurant, in the car, in the grocery store, or at the dinner table! If he doesn’t like the initial taste, the food is IMMEDIATELY ejected out of his mouth. He’s done this with eggs, meat, rice, potatoes, and even chocolate. Yes, even chocolate! That’s a real joy to clean up.
Now, I know I’ve gone through this with my other 2 boys, but I can’t remember how long the phase lasted, how I responded, or how I got them to stop doing it! I think my memory is seriously getting worse! Ack!
Do you have kids that have done this or do this? What do you do?
