Explanation: food served in individual bites on specially designed taste spoons, is a bit of mouthful! But it adequately describes it.
'Served in individual bites on spoons' is the closest I could find on the web. There does not appear to be a lot around, although I know special spoons have been designed for these 'lepelhapjes', of which the handles curl under so that your finger has a better hold. In order to describe this practise, you could add that especially tasty food morsels or mousse appears to be served in this manner.

Explanation: This is a cute Dutch word for what the rest of the world knows as an appetizer or amuse-gueule (from the French), this being a bite-sized appetizer served on a large spoon, prior to a choice being made from the menu. Generally the word amuse is used being loaned from the French.

spoon fed or spoon- fed
Explanation: If a baby or elderly person has to be fed because they can't feed themselves, they would have to be spoon-fed. That would be called spoon-feeding.
This would not of course be appropriate if the translation relates to eating at a party or similar event.

I suppose it will depend on whether a certain type of food, or a certain type of eating/feeding is meant. But to me 'spoonfuls' seems logical.
spoonfuls: lepels(vol) and in afrikaans - lepelsgewyse
