When we say ‘less sharp knives’, we don’t mean blunt ones, but ones that are more suited to cutting soft fruit or cheese, like these cheese spreaders. They are great for really little kids, as they have chunky handles

Once they are more confident, kids can move on to using a Lettuce Knife like these one – good for practicing using a big knife, without it being quite so scary!
