You will see at every meal, baby wants to eat alone. Alas, he/she is still a little awkward. Of course, he/she knows how to drink by themselves, but the spoon is still difficult. He/she carries it to their mouth but not always in the right direction and often the food falls next. However, it is necessary to encourage it in this learning.

The best is that you each have your spoon, so you give them food and in parallel, he/she tries. Also, have the food cut into small pieces that can be eaten with your fingers. Do not forget the plastic bibs with their small gutter to catch everything that falls! By the way, at fifteen months, you will notice that your baby’s appetite varies from one meal to another. their tastes are unstable: one day he/she loves carrots, the next day he/she refuses them. You are also surprised that he/she likes tasty foods such as Roquefort or smoked fish. Do not force them to eat something they do not like, or to finish their plate if they are no longer hungry.
