The Stage 3 childrens cutlery sets are designed for reception and primary school aged children aged from 3 - 9 years old. Ideally suited for children comfortably using their left and right handed movement together when eating and becoming  more independent at mealtimes and doing what the big kids do!  (3 years to 9 years).

Our children cutlery sets are a patented, ergonomically designed creation uniquely shaped for children to learn how to use a knife and fork whilst promoting using a three fingered tripod grasp. When the thumb, index finger and middle finger work together to pick up small objects. A child typically develops this grip around the age of three or four years old. It is a functional grasp which is essential for a number of tasks, such as holding a pencil or fastening buttons. This grasp is used throughout the day and is an essential part of their grip development.  As children improve their dexterity, co-ordination and fine motor skills, they will be able to move into a tripod grip more easily from a relaxed hand.The best way to develop and strengthen your child’s tripod grip is to encourage them to practice using this grasp at every opportunity, strengthening the muscles in their hands.


Nana’s Manners children’s cutlery can also be used in play, e.g., with play-dough! This is done in many nurseries and school settings. That’s a lot of fine motor skill development support rolled into the everyday task of eating!

The children cutlery set designed to promote independence at mealtimes whilst making learning to use a knife & fork fun and easy  for little hands. These are the last sets your children will need until they are ready for adult sized cutlery.
