What age did your baby start picking up food?

My son is 11months old and has 8teeth. He is a great eater but he has Absolutely no interest in picking up food himself. what age do kids usually start this? Is there anything I can do to help him learn a little faster?

    Give him only food that he can pick up himself, no more spoon feeding. My daughter was 6.5 months old when she started picking up food and eating it.

    His he reaching for toys? That will be the first thing that they go for and then they will learn to reach for food!

    my 5 month old is grabbing his toys now, so start with that

    Get some toys and try that.

    My son puts anything he can get his hands on in his mouth, so it wasn’t a problem. However a close friend of mine had a baby that absolutely would not pick up food and put it in her mouth until about 16 months. They tried everything. Then one day she just decided that she liked to feed herself bananas.
