Which cutlery at which age?

What kind of cutlery should I be using aged one and onwards until a child uses regular adult cutlery?

We used little plastic cutlery for a while but DS found it hard to pick anything up with the fork so we moved onto little metal cutlery which he finds much easier. He sometimes uses regular cutlery as well now (he's 20 months).

You can get kids cutlery that is metal with plastic handles - that's what we used

DD is 19 months and she uses small metal cutlery with a plastic handle, or adult cutlery. She refuses to eat off plastic cutlery.

There's a nice small metal set in ikea which we have for my toddler. Cake forks are also just the right size if you have any of those

Check out Pound Shops, I've picked up quite a few childrens stainless steel knife/fork/spoon sets in there.
