How old were you when you learned to use chopsticks?
In many Asian countries, chopsticks are the main utensils. In the Philippines, chopsticks are as ubiquitous as Chinese and Japanese restaurants.
It is smart and practical to teach kids how to use chopsticks around the same time they are learning how to use a spoon and fork.
The Agoncillos and the Arellanos seemed to have this in mind when they introduced the utensils to the youngest members of their respective families.
While dining at a ramen restaurant, Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo taught their two-year-old Luna this skill.
Mommy Juday used a hack—she tied the two sticks with a rubber band, and inserted a rolled-up paper wrapper in between, creating a fulcrum.
Daddy Ryan then took a video of Luna using the chopsticks successfully while eating gyoza, torn into bite-sized pieces by her mom.
Meanwhile, Drew Arellano inserted fun and education while enjoying a bowl of noodles with Primo, his eldest son with wife Iya Villania (the couple are expecting their second son).
The doting dad gave his son, who is turning two on August 30, a pair of chopsticks, and inserted bits of noodles, which the little boy happily ate.
Drew posted this adorable milestone on his IG stories on July 7.
