There's no exact time that a child should know this skill. My son is 19 months old and still doesn't do much more than make a mess when he tries to use a fork and spoon. We've been giving him his own spoon since he was around 11 months old...maybe younger. I think the best way to teach him to eat is to show by example. We eat dinner at the table with our son probably 5 out of 7 nights a week. He's mimicing us and almost has the hang of it! Well, he can get the food on the fork...getting it INTO his mouth is another story lol A lot of the time he still eats with his hands. Your daughter will get it when she's ready. Remember, 14 months is still a little baby...give her time Mommy....so many things to learn at this age...
