comment How can I negotiate with a toddler successfully?
I would suggest you maybe counted to aggressively? The trick here is to have a tone that implies you are giving them time to comply, rather than your fuse is running out. Further to that when you get to 3 you have to calmly carry out the punishment rather than be angry.

comment How do I get an easily distracted 5 year old to eat more?
Appreciate the thought @Beofett. In the UK 5 year olds are not pre-schoolers. He is in Year 1 of the schooling system, which comes after Reception year. Before that is pre-school (i.e. 3-4 years old).

The reward afterwards simply encourages him to stop eating sooner, rather than finish eating quicker, unfortunately! Tried that one. Thanks for the snack tip. V helpful.

Love the idea of "talking him out" :-) So when the time-box times-out do you just remove his meal? And after that he's allowed to snack if he wants?
