comment What are good strategies to deal with a child getting distracted during meals?
Some problems are ephemeral - you are just trying to get them through a stage in life until their priorities or tastes mature. Somewhat like your question on getting kids to eat raw garlic - perhaps they are just not quite old enough yet.

comment I've taken all of my 13 year old daughter's possessions, and she's still disrespectful
@user75702 - You ask "What is my next step?" and then state that you have spanked your daughter recently. I would say that I am allowed to offer my opinion about spanking. Going by the comments you've left and the original question, you have a very definite view of parenting and discipline. I'm just not sure what you expected to hear.

comment Sun Bathing to get Vitamin D for infants
Keep in mind that there are significant differences between individuals. I'm a pasty red head, my wife is mediterranean. My vitamin D levels are fine whereas hers a very low and she has to take supplements. Our son (who's a lot darker than me) is also lacking in vitamin D. Blood tests are simple and (in Australia) free - so it might be worth getting a baseline test done if you are concerned (liver function, sugar levels, vitamin D, iron, etc...)

comment visual stimulation videos for infants
research = hypothesis + test. Opinion = Opinion. A peer-reviewed test done by a reputable and independent organisation trumps opinion. In this case, the research showed these videos impair cognitive development.
