Is it bad table manners for children over 5 to eat canned corn

Is it bad table manners for children over 5 to eat canned corn with a spoon?



No, there used to be a assumption that children over the age of 7 should use the fork like the adults but this has faded out. Though most people will begin having children at the age of 7-8 begin practice with the fork at non formal meals. In the end until the child can master the use of the fork with corn it is far better manners to allow the child to use the spoon then to make a mess of his/her food.
