Are chicken nuggets and crackers at the top of your child's list of favorite foods?
Parents of picky eaters are always looking for ideas of fruits, vegetables, and proteins that their kids will actually eat. Sometimes it’s not the taste of these foods that keep kids away. Instead, it can be the texture.
Parents ask me how they can introduce new foods to a kid who refuses new foods and can’t even tolerate having new foods on hi s or her plate without a meltdown.
Like any mom, you’re worried if your child is eating the right amount of food.
Eating is tricky. Especially for kids with autism. Children with autism face many barriers to eating: sensory issues, rigid preferences, and fear of new foods are some of the most common ones I see.
