Nana’s Manners was born when now, mum of three Kathryn, a primary school teacher recognised that early years children were not able to use a knife and fork at lunchtimes. As a result, the teachers lunch breaks were spent rushing to cut up all the children’s food! Realising the need for a teaching aide that supports children learning to master this essential life skill. Kathryn decided to set about solving the problem and designing our very first product. A knife and fork set for children.

Fast forward two years, Kathryn and husband Chris introduced Nana’s Manners by appearing on the BBC TV show the Dragons Den and with the advice and help of dragon Touker Suleyman and team. Our products are now making their way to little hands across the world.
