Signing: Take your non-dominant hand palm up to form the ‘plate’. Then make a fork with the index and middle fingers on your dominant hand and place it on the plate then move it toward your hands. It should look like you are spearing some food on your fork, then taking it to your mouth to eat.
Usage: Introduce fork once baby starts using cutlery, and start to encourage baby to use the fork rather than her hands.
