my dd is 9 months and already gets distracted so easily...I find that giving more than one item at a meal helps, b/c then when she gets bored w/her green beans, I move on to macaroni,etc. Also, she eats larger quant_ties when I feed her, but she likes to feed herself, so I feed her some first, then let her have a turn.

I arrange the food in patterns and such. For example.... bananas, I cut them in rounds and form a smile face on the plate and put a dollop of either whipped cream or hersheys choc on top of each slice. Both my 18m and 4y old love it!

I try to keep mine entertained when I notice he is starting to get bored. I will play peek a boo with him or tickle his feet something to make him laugh and get him in a good mood and usually after a little distraction he will eat some more.........hubby will sometimes distract him by making faces etc while I shovel in the food and he just kinda automatically eats while he is watching dad be silly.......something to try anyway.
