An 18-month-old’s developmental milestones include more changes at the dinner table. Around now, your 18-month old will eat with her hands less and starts picking utensils. Her grip might be shaky, but she should be able to eat some foods (oatmeal, pees, mashed potatoes) with a spoon. Just be forewarned: Just because she can eat with a spoon doesn’t mean she’ll want to eat with a spoon every time you sit down dinner. Expect lots of food to still end up the floor even with the spoon in play. It will take some practice before she’s totally proficient in spoon use (and before she even wants to use it.)
