‘Way Back When’sday: Child’s Food Pusher Utensil

Babies in the Victorian Era had child-sized utensils, just like children do today.

The child’s table service below is on display
at the Bernhard Museum in Auburn, California.

While touring the museum, the docent pointed out the utensil
to the left of the cup. It’s call a food pusher.

This special utensil helped a child transition from eating with the fingers
to using silverware. The youngster would use a food pusher to load
a bite onto a fork or spoon. Clever, isn’t it?

What unique utensils from yesteryear have you discovered?
