Research Facts
Pap boat is a small receptacle for feeding pap to infants and invalids. The typical form is boat-shaped, having the feeding end shaped as a short lip or an extended tapering lip to be placed on the mouth of the person being fed, and the holding end somewhat incurved and usually without a handle.
The term 'pap', allegedly derived from the Scandinavian for the sound made when a baby opens his mouth for nourishment, was probably introduced before its first recordings in literature in the mid-18th century. Recipes for pap usually called for bread, flour and water. A more nourishing mixture, 'panada', was a pap base with added butter and milk, or cooked in broth as a milk substitute.
