i know this is gradual but my son is about to turn 2 next week and he can only feed himself things i cut up into small pieces for him with a fork. he can't really use a spoon well yet and can't feed himself harder things that require more control - like soups...well, i guess he can, but it just gets so messy, we just feed him those kinds of things rather than having him feed himself and making a mess. when i do let him eat soup and harder/messier things to eat, he just plays with the food, mushes the food in his hands and puts his hand in the bowls/plates, rather than eat the food... how can i help my toddler feed himself better, not play with his food, etc. do i just let him make messes and have him play with food? thanks in advance!
