theres nothing wrong to eat with our hands its a nature and it is made that way in old times but in a public or i mean you are with so many different people arround its not appropriate.we can do it in our house but not in a public.

It depends onthe kind of dish u are eating,most of our local dishes here in Nigeria are finger foods. You can try using cutleries, but it is not as delicious as using our fingers, but then you have to learn to keep your nail short,and wash you hands with soap before and after each meal.

It all depends on the convenience and the type of food we eat, whenever i feel lazy to get up and wash my hands, i use a spoon and fork, otherwise, most of the time, i use my hands to eat

there is nothing wrong eating with hands...i always eat with my hands...even if i go to any top restaurants...i don't care how others are eating...i don't feel satisfied if i am using spoon and fork...i have tried it...it's the way we it at home...since i was born and bought up...i haven't seen any of my family members using a spoon to eat other than they are injured on the right hand...i have even seen people using spoon and fork to eat when they even don't know how to eat with it...just to show off or whatever the reason it maybe...but they ended up feeling embaressed...when they could not eat it properly and people laughed at them.

I eat with my hands too, but that's only at home. In places of public gathering it's a matter of etiquette. I would not like to draw attention of people around to me for the sake of me eating with my hands. So nothing wrong with a spoon and fork.

Sometimes I will eat with my hands depending on the meal. Like of course pizza or tacos. But if I can use utensils when eating meals I will. I am just kind of like that. I am the type of person that likes to keep my hands clean and use a napkin if I can. I don't see anything wrong with people who like to eat with their hands though as long as they seem to be respectful.
