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 12months+ 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.
