Caring Cutlery helps a child to hold the cutlery in the most efficient way and encourages independence with cutting up food. The handles have finger indents, where the index fingers are placed, and contoured handles, to make them easier to hold. For maximum benefit the child should be supervised when using the cutlery initially to ensure their fingers are positioned correctly.
The cutlery should be used as long as it is deemed both beneficial by the parent / teacher and acceptable to the child. Once the child is proficient using the cutlery they can try standard cutlery.
