Developmentally, your little one (LO) may start to use a fork around 2.5 years, but truth- it’s all about exposure (the more you see it) and practice (the better you get)!
This is one of my favorite activity because it helps do just that! I cut up pieces of strawberries (watermelon and pears work well too) and put each piece in an ice tray. It’s contained (no slipping), which means no frustrated toddler!
Grabese Utensils: Comes with a spoon and fork set (along with a travel pouch to take on-the-go if you need to). As for spoons? Present one at every meal right when they start solids. That probably means, your LO won’t even know how to grab it in the beginning, but getting them familiar with the tool is part of the process and I’ll say it again, , it's all about exposure and practice.
As an Occupational therapist these are the reasons why I highly recommend these utensils (esp for new eaters)
It has a protection shield to prevent them from choking
Making it super safe
The handles are thick making it perfect for those little hands to hold and finally-
The utensils promotes optimal grasp for good hand development
Bonus- so easy to clean
