My 11yrs old simply refuses to eat anything with a spoon. Tried giving her a spoon to self feed, bought new colourful spoons but in vain. She will eat only if i feed her with hand. This makes it difficult to feed her stuff like porridge, cereal, soups etc. Any suggestions?

I'm 'thinking' the yrs was a typo and you mean 11 months...? If it's not a typo you need help from some medical professionals. If she IS 11 MONTHS... don't worry about it. Keep offering her a spoon, but let her feed herself however she can. Babies are easy to clean and that's how she learns. There are a lot of foods she can self feed that don't require a spoon (dry cereal, pieces of fruit/veggies, pasta, toast, etc...). She will get there in plenty of time.
