The journey from finger food to little cutlery connoisseurs.
The ability to use cutlery in different ways is a fantastic way to keep track of your child’s development.
With that in mind, here at doddl we’ve created a simple checklist to tick off those motor-skill mini-milestones… as you watch your little one go from spoon rookie to fork master.
The checkpoints below are aimed at an age range of 12 months+ and we’ve put them in a loose step-by-step order. But we know that all kids develop differently, so if your child aces 6 before they’ve conquered 4, that’s just as good.
At doddl we work with feeding specialists and development experts to ensure all of our advice is up to date and accurate.
