At what age do children start feeding themselves from spoons? My 12 month old vastly prefers me to feed him. But lately he has been taking the spoon wanting to do it himself. But I'm sure now is the time to start. Even though i'm sure it will be a mess I was thinking I can try foods that stick to the spoon. He can eat finger foods like the gerber puffs, fruits, cheerios and such. So that limits what he can feed himself. How soon do most children learn to spoon-feed themselves?
