How can I encourage my child to eat form a spoon? I find it hard to force him. Thanks.

It all depends on how old your child is. Don't worry too much about it, children go through phases during early development, sometimes he will want to imitate adults and sometimes will seem to be taking steps back again. You might find it easier to get him to accept the spoon if he eats at the table with the rest of the family. If he sits in a high chair away from everyone else, he will feel different to the rest of you, which will make him feel like a 'baby'.
