That's because it is new and fun! Just keep encouraging him and he'll get the hang of it eventually. :)

ok I just wondered if I was not doing something right. yes he sees us eating, he has no siblings. He does start daycare tomorrow so maybe that will help him

Is he not feeding himself at all on his own or is he just not using a fork or spoon?

Some children take longer. Does he see you eating all the time or any brothers or sisters? Sometimes they learn best by seeing others do it all the time.
