GDN Reader's View: Finger food

Letters
Wendy Doel


I’ve just read that children haven’t got the strength to use a pencil properly, because being given iPads as toddlers has stopped them developing finger dexterity. Does that explain the trend of children and young adults being unable to hold a knife and fork properly, and resorting instead to the shovel and tear process?
A glance around any fast-food restaurant in Bahrain reveals a host of youngsters unable to eat with expertise or delicacy.
Give it 10 years and all food will be eaten with fingers and a spoon – is that evolution?
