Teaching your child how to eat properly

From the Tusla Parenting24Seven website

When showing your child how to hold a spoon – get close to your child, and hold a spoon in your hand. Do the same with a glass and cup.

Allow your child to feed themselves, even if they miss their mouth.

Sit and eat with your child, let them see how you use cutlery, glasses and cups. It is important to let children of this age to explore textures – e.g. cutlery and food.
