Eating in an elegant and polite way is very important, not only for adults, but must be taught since childhood. Therefore, the seventh day, with etiquette expert Hala Al-Azab, reviews the etiquette of a child’s eating, and the appropriate age to start teaching a child the rules of etiquette related to eating.
The appropriate age to teach a child eating etiquette:
The child can be taught the etiquette of eating at the age of ten months to a year, as the child can learn to hold the spoon and the fork and knife are not allowed to be used until after mastering their use.
At the age of two years, he can eat on his own while monitoring his performance so as not to harm himself and to make sure that he does not fill the spoon too much or that he puts the entire spoon in his mouth and hurts his throat, and so that he does not adopt this wrong and harmful way of eating as well.
At the age of 4 years, he can use the fork and knife made especially for children, After that, he must adapt to the fact that it is not correct to sit on the table unless he washes his two hands and enters the bathroom so that this is not needed while sitting in case there are guests, and also it is not correct to sit on the table unless adults or the owners of the house sit if we are determined and then He can sit down and start eating after them.
Teaching a child to respect mealtime:
The mother should not try to feed the child while he is playing with his own toys or while he is walking in the room or while he is studying, for example, and it is also not desirable to feed the child while he is lying on the floor or on his bed, and it must be ensured that he is in a sitting position so that he does not choke while swallowing food.
Baby food etiquette:
The mother should not put food in refrigerator boxes or in small cooking utensils. Rather, it is preferable to bring special tools and spoons for the child that do not harm his mouth or gums. Especially.
Child seat etiquette on the table:
We must assure the child before sitting that he does not move his legs from their place under the table and does not shake the legs or raise them exaggeratedly, and the child must be taught the best ways to use the table towel while emphasizing that it is not used to wipe the sweat or the nose, and also pay attention to the education of The child closes his mouth during eating and does not fill the mouth with food and puts large quantities in each bite or spoon, and it is not acceptable to blow on food and also refrain from sipping loudly when drinking the soup, taking care to drink next to the spoon and not in front of it.
It is not correct to hold the spoon or fork or the letter of the cup with the teeth, and if the child shares the food with adults at the table, it is not correct for you to sit for a long time, so the child will feel bored and thus have to play and mess with the things on the table.
Etiquette for preparing the child before preparing food:
At home, accustom your child to help arrange the meal so that he gets used to arranging it in a special way, so that it becomes a habit, and also contribute to tasks and bring dishes into the kitchen, and also emphasize that the child thanks his Lord before and after food so that he obtains the blessing of remembrance.
Etiquette of eating out of the house:
If you are determined, it is not correct for the child to ask for food, and therefore, in order not to be exposed to this embarrassing behavior, the child must be stressed not to do this matter, and if the child is young in age, there is no objection to feeding him before going to the determination until he is satisfied and calms down.
