Benefits Of Children's Cutlery

There are many benefits to providing kid-friendly cutlery to your child at mealtimes. Dinnerware designed for children is often constructed from materials such as food-safe plastics like melamine, or stainless steel metals. These materials are much more durable than standard dishes made from porcelain or ceramic. This means any accidental bumps or spills are much less likely to result in chips and breaks, making these types of dinnerware much safer for use by children. Children's cutlery is also constructed to be less sharp for added safety. Standard cutlery is designed for use by adults, which often results in the handle of that fork or spoon being too large and heavy for small children to use correctly. This can result in frustration for the little one and a less enjoyable mealtime for all. Kids' cutlery solves this issue by offering purpose-made utensils, designed for easy & comfortable use by children.

Kids Cutlery FAQ

At what age can children use cutlery?

The age at which a child can begin to use cutlery will of course depend on the individual - everyone learns at a different pace! Generally speaking, many children can begin to explore using cutlery around 18 months to 2 years old, but it may take a while for them to become proficient. This is why it's recommended to start with child-sized utensils that are easy to hold, as well as blunt to prevent injury. As your little ones grow and develop their fine motor skills and coordination, they can gradually start using sharper utensils.

How do I teach a child to use a knife and fork?

It's best to introduce utensils and cutlery to a child when they start to show interest in using them. Many children will naturally gain a desire to learn how to perform more tasks independently over time, including eating with a knife and fork. There is no one-fits-all solution to teaching a child how to use cutlery since this will depend on the individual. Having said this, starting with child-sized utensils and gradually progressing through soft and hard foods is always recommended. If your child has a favourite character or theme that they love, allowing them to pick out their favourite design of cutlery will also help to make the process feel more fun and interactive!

Once your child has become more comfortable with using their own cutlery, you can start to introduce them to other types of kid-friendly dinnerware. Teaching your child to use tableware such as glassware and the correct use of napery promotes great table manners from a young age, and is incredibly helpful for preventing accidents or injuries.
