    I've never come across this one. My guess is that it has to do something with spoliing one's meal.

    Like IvanV, I've never met this. I suppose if you were 'born with a silver spoon in your mouth' - UsingEnglish.com and squandered your inheritance you might be said to have spoilt your spoon...

    I have not come across this particular idiom before , but there are some other idioms with spoon.

    spoon-feed someone - to over care or over indulge someone. To teach someone with methods that are too easy and do not stimulate the learner to think for themselves.

    Check this link out for more idioms that use spoon : spoon - Idioms - by the Free Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    Enjoy!
