Inquiring minds want to know

Parenting mystery #2,745:

Why does food on the floor look so appealing to babies and toddlers? My dear daughter will tell me she is done eating (with wonderful sounds, screams and flailing arm motions), only to get down on the floor and eat the very foods she flung from her highchair just moments before.

Why is this?

I know! Taylor does the same thing. I had given up on her eating her broccoli after she quite intentionally dropped/threw it all over the floor. Then she fussed to get down, and when she did, she gobbled up five bites of that broccoli. Despite the location of the food, though, I ended up being pleased she downed her veggies, ha ha!
