A spoon is a cutlery item that is used to scoop up and eat food. It has a handle that you hold and a rounded, cupped area at the end. This cupped area is where the food goes when you use the spoon. Some spoons are small, like a teaspoon, and can be used for stirring sugar into tea or coffee. Others are bigger, like a tablespoon, and are used for scooping up larger amounts of food, like soup or mashed potatoes. You can also use a spoon to feed yourself or others, or to scoop toppings onto your food, like whipped cream onto dessert. So, basically, a spoon is a handy tool to help you eat and enjoy your food!
