How can I get my one year old to be more interested in eating food rather than playing with it or being picky and throwing half of it on the floor?
I don't know how normal your meal time is, but for me it helped a lot to have our meals all together, with everyone eating more or less the same thing (for the child a version that is suitable for her, with secure cuts of the food, no sugar, etc.) Have a conversation all together and involve her in it, so talking to her and smiling at her so she feels part of it. Mine then tries to imitate us with the cutlery while she is eating. I bought some nice cutlery that she loves!
