When she does that take away her food and she's done for that meal. Do that a few times and she'll quit putting it on the floor. She won't starve - kids will eat when they are hungry.

Don't make a fuss about it - don't yell or have a fit. Just calmly take it away and say that's it.

I agree. You could also make her pick it up off of the floor.

We have the same problem with our 2.5-year old son. We take the food away, and make him pick up what he dropped. I don't know if the method works, but he does seem to be doing it less. Maybe he's getting more mature.
