Table Etiquette Rules

Practice makes one perfect, so keep learning about how you can make your eating experience a good one, be it in a formal set-up or an informal gathering. Here are some helpful pointers on table manners and appropriate eating etiquette. Chew on... 

  • Always place the napkin on your lap prior to beginning the meal.
  • Wait to begin eating until everyone is seated at the table and has been served their meal. 

  • If you need something, ask the nearest person to pass it; don’t reach across the table for it.  
  • Don’t talk with food in your mouth. 

  • Please chew with your mouth closed and keep lips together.
  • At an informal meal, if you need to get up during the meal (for using restroom or taking a call), politely ask to be excused and return to the table as soon as possible. 

  • Take the food on your fork or spoon up to your mouth. Not your mouth down to the fork or spoon. Eating over the plate helps, in case there is a little spill.
  • In between eating, rest your fork and knife on the plate in and upside down “V.” Waving knives and forks around the table is rude and plain bad manners, and can even hurt someone.
  • Try to use both your fork and knife and while cutting your food, try to keep your elbows close to your side.
  • When you finish, place fork and knife on the plate to the right side with blade in and fork in the upward position.

On a significant scale Times NIE comprises diverse interesting activities and events that boost the child’s passion for learning, while revealing hidden talent.

While you are aware that The Times of India is among the leading English Newspapers across the world, it has consummated its position as an everlasting winner. With several international awards and recognitions to its credit, The Times of India and Times NIE have validated an enduring tradition of setting the highest benchmarks in every respect.
