How can you help your picky eater with autism try new foods? There are many ways to help your picky one gain interest in eating new foods. One of my favorites is bringing them into the kitchen and encouraging them to get down and dirty with food.
Feeding a child with autism can be a challenge. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability. While the manifestation of autism symptoms is unique in each individual, behavioral barriers, food anxiety, limited diets, and sensory aversions are common challenges that complicate eating for kids on the spectrum.
I’m so excited to share this super easy recipe with you today. These crispy smashed potatoes have become a staple in my house (and we don’t even like potatoes that much!). They’re easy, healthy, and a perfect recipe to introduce cooking to your child with autism.
Christmas music on the radio only means one thing: the holidays are here and it’s time to get shopping!
I curated these gifts for any food-loving kid or picky eater who you would love to one day become a food-loving kid! Gifts are chosen for kids with autism and sensory processing disorder and/or picky eaters who could use a nudge to broaden their appetites.
Imagine this: your child - open to exploring new foods, helping out in the kitchen, excited to pass through the produce section of the grocery store, asking for second servings of something other than chicken nuggets.
Does this sound like a dream?
It doesn’t have to be. Adopting one simple action is all you need to start converting your kiddo from a veggie skeptic to happy omnivore.
