Good table etiquette is an important part of your demeanour. How you eat draws immediate attention and it plays a huge role in our socialising process. Family mealtimes are the perfect place to show children how to behave and respect everyone sitting at the table.

Nowadays many families struggle to find time at the dinner table together. And, to teach a child good manners and proper dining skills with little time to focus on these necessary social and dining skills is hard work, takes a lot of patience and is often met with resistance and poor attitude.

Many adults don’t actually know how to hold their knife and fork correctly. If we don’t learn eating adequately at a young age we risk carrying poor eating habits around for the rest of our lives.

To understand the importance of etiquette and how to use it, we offer a table etiquette workshop together with our cutlery where we introduce the basics of table manners in a simple way to be easily understood at any age.

The greatest investment you can make to your child’s social education. M Cailloux Cutlery set is a tool that allows children to demonstrate the rules of etiquette around the table properly and instinctively.

For me the cutlery is beautiful, it is so well designed, giving you the confidence to get comfortable in using westernstyle dining cutlery. If you landed from outer space and were handed the cutlery you would know almost instantaneously how to hold and use the cutlery. This is pure confidence in your hands.

I would highly recommend M.Cailloux cutlery for children as it really helps them to learn how to hold cutlery correctly from a young age. The design and material adds elegance and sophistication, my students have a great time learning dining etiquette and table manners using cutlery that is ideal for their age
