First, you need to sit on the entire seat of the chair, and not on the edge, while leaning slightly forward. Be sure to keep your back straight, and when talking to someone, do not turn your whole body, limited to just your head. Do not put a hand under the table that you do not use during the meal.

How to keep appliances during a meal?
A spoon should be kept between the thumb and index finger and bring it to the mouth a little diagonally. Do not fill it too much - food should not be spilled from a spoon.
