I think it's important to take a no nonsense approach to eating with children, starting at a young age when they start eating solid food. There is lots of time to play games and have fun, I don't think meal time is one of them. I have a couple of meal times rules that I use on a daily basis:
1.) No toys at the table
2.) You don't have to clean your plate but you have to try everything.
