When does a child start using cutlery?
My son is seventeen months old, and although he can hold a spoon he prefers to eat with his fingers. A friend of mine has a 10 year old who can only use a fork, so she cuts up all his food for him! When is the right age for independent cutlery use? Do you remember learning how to use a knife and fork?
