Lol, reminds me of my son. He didn't like to feed himself for an embarrassingly long time. He hated getting dirty, so he would not feed himself using his fingers unless it was something dry. I will admit, I fed him.

Why doesnt he use it?Is he scared? Maybe try buying him a special set of kids fork,knife and spoon.Or a special spoon/fork with characters on it.We had winnie the pooh ones that even had the bears head on the end of the spoon.Maybe he will find it fun to "eat with winnie the pooh".
