    Default Which spoons?

    All my decent toddler spoons seem to have done a runner over the years.

    Can anybody recommend any decent ones that don't cost the earth?

    Mine either have a handle that is too long/short, or the round bit is too big etc.

    I use a plastic ser of toy cutlery a retiring childminder gave me 15 odd years ago!

    I have some of these Online Food Shopping | Grocery Delivery | ASDA Groceries

    But generic, not branded.

    I've got some of the plastic Ikea spoons but I think they're a bit chunky. If a child uses one to eat a fromage frais, they can fit most of the small pot on the spoon, which means half of it falls off! For the younger children I've got some Nuby spoons, but like you say, the handles are long. They're good for when you're feeding the child but not so good for when they're just learning to feed themselves.

    I've also got some small metal cutlery sets that I bought from Asda (I think). They were cheap and cheerful. Not particularly good quality, but they do the job.
