"Hey Diddle Diddle
The Cat and the Fiddle
The Cow jumped over the moon.
The Little Dog laughed
To see such sport
And the dish ran away with the spoon."
- Children's nursery rhyme

Spoons are utensils for cooking, eating, and serving food that consist of a small bowl and a handle. Its companion the fork is made up of at least two prongs and a handle. Together, forks and spoons are known as flatware.

Researchers have discovered ancient spoons of baked clay, bone, and wood. Bronze spoons have been discovered in ancient Egypt. The earliest forks had only one point but were made two-pronged in ancient Rome. These were used primarily for serving foods. By the 1800s, matched sets of these utensils, along with knives, were common in households and carried by travelers.

Did you know? A modern utensil that places the prongs of the fork within the bowl of the spoon is called a "spork." These are common in fast-food restaurants, reducing the need for separate pieces of flatware.

The fork and spoon are often used as symbols to represent food, hunger, or dining. They are often used in kitchen or restaurant décor. Characters in film or animation may grasp their utensils in their fists and bang them on the table to express great hunger and an impatience to be served.

Sometimes, these utensils are personified as characters, as exemplified by the nursery rhyme quoted above. Another example is the character Forky from Disney's animated film Toy Story 4.
