3V0282.01 Spoon dropping = food rejection

Spoon play – After the edge has been taken off her hunger, Peggy reaches for the spoon as she is being fed. Or she grips the spoon with her teeth, holding it in her mouth until she can grasp it with a hand. Frequently, she plays with the spoon, turning it over and over, and feeling any food left in the bowl, and chewing on it. When she tires of this, she simply lets the spoon drop. Occasionally, she takes the spoon from my hand and immediately, deliberately drops it over the side of her chair into the floor.
