Many of our children struggle with this and are really messy eaters.  Caring cutlery has been proven to help as it has curves to aid their grip.  Also if they fidget a lot whilst eating providing chairs where their feet can touch something (either the floor or a foot stool) can help.  Some have trialled wobble cushions with mixed success.

One O.T used weights on wrists and hands whilst writting and using peg type board games to strengthen them for eating - ask professional advice before trying

Drinks are also messy - some suggestions for when they outgrow toddler cups use a plastic cup with straw or use a travel mug with a straw through the drink hole so they dont need to tip it up
