Can anyone recommend a cutlery set for a 4yo with hypermobility? Poor DS2 is really struggling with a normal knife and fork.

Caring cutlery was recommended by our OT - sorry I can't link but you should be able to Google. My dd is extremely hypermobile but won't use anything 'different' - makes life very hard for herself!

Caring cutlery is most often recommended, from what I've seen. But there's also this: www.mobilityshop.co.uk/kitchen-and-dining-aids/cutlery-aids/foam-padding-cylindrical-2cm-diameter_cylindrical-foam-padding.html
