Ergonomics, Convenience & Portability


"It is recommended that children begin to eat solid food with a spoon between 4-6 months of age, in addition to breast milk or formula. There are many fundamental skills needed for language development and using a spoon directly contributes to the development and coordination of the lips, tongue, mouth, cheeks, and jaw. Children who do not progress from sucking to eating pureed foods from a spoon, to chewing different textured table foods, may be at risk for problems learning to speak well as they get older."


Jennifer Roslund, M.A., CCC-SLP

Potential issues to infants caused by continuous sucking

  • Irregular development of facial muscles leading to speech delays
  • Irregular development of jaw leading to overcrowding of teeth
  • Missed developmental stages associated with the ability to coordinate motor skills
  • Learned poor eating habits, such as lack of portion control
  • Enamel erosion and tooth decay
  • Lack of interaction between child and caregiver
