(HealthDay News) — Regular family meals offer a chance to eat healthy foods and practice good table manners.

When should your child learn table etiquette? Here are suggestions from the American Academy of Pediatrics:

  • At age 4, teach your child to hold utensils properly, including supervised use of a table knife.
  • Teach your child not to talk with a mouth full of food.
  • Have your child use a napkin.
  • Don’t allow your child to reach across someone else’s plate.
  • Set a good example by modeling good table manners.
