Eating Utensils - silverware, flatware, cutlery and other tableware that help make feeding and eating easier.

Adapted Eating Utensils

Picking up silverware, a fork or spoon, and lifting food to your mouth, or picking up a knife to cut your meat then using the fork to lift the meat to your mouth. It's just natural for healthy people to eat and not think of every motion required to eat.

Disabilities can interfere with daily living activities like eating. Physical limitations can make eating at dinnertime more difficult. Using special silverware can help. People of all ages who need support to feed themselves independently can benefit from the use of assistive eating devices. Children with special needs as a result of neuromuscular issues, neurological challenges and developmental disabilities that impact the use of the hands benefit both psychologically and physically from learning to eat with assistive tableware. Adults living with neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, MS, or ALS, or those in rehabilitation from spinal cord injuries, rheumatoid arthritis, or living with congenital conditions including cerebral palsy may eat with a minimum of help by using assistive utensils and dinnerware. Seniors living with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or post-stroke issues may retain some of their autonomy by eating with adaptive tableware, too. Ask your health care provider which ones will work best for your loved one.
