Nana’s Manners ® knows every parent cherishes that moment their child learns a new life skill. We set about looking at the world through a child’s eyes with one aim; to make life easier for kids.
Through simple and effective designs, our products are developed to empower children learning everyday life skills independently whilst helping to build their confidence in the world around them.
Even mini versions of adult sized cutlery are really difficult for kids to use. Designed by a primary school teacher after noticing how many children struggled at lunchtimes with this key life skill.
“Returning to teaching after having my son, I found myself trying to get children in a class of 30 to eat a hot meal with a knife and fork at lunchtime. Only two children had an idea how to hold and use the cutlery. Lunchtime quickly became the most stressful hour in the day! As a teacher I have used pencil grips, training scissors, easy grip rulers, yet there was no cutlery out there that works this way. Research and a patent search confirmed this, so I set about designing some myself…” – Kathryn, Founder of Nana’s Manners’
After much research, testing and development, we now have the perfect shaped handles that teach little hands to hold and use a knife and fork independently.
