Oh, that should be lean over a bowl. Blind children tend to eat with
their head straight up when sighted children learn from watching their
parents to lean slightly so the food drops on the plate of bowl and
not all over them and the table. Next time your eating try it with out
leaning forward and you will realize that that is not comfortable for
you because you are used to leaning.
