20+ Healthy Packed Lunch Ideas for Picky Eaters
Do you feel like your autistic picky eater with sensory issues eats the same thing every day?
If this sounds like you and you’re looking for new ideas for a sensory avoider or a child with poor oral motor skills (a kid who prefers soft, smooth, and easy-to-chew foods) this meal plan is for you!
What is it about autistic kids and food touching?
One of the frustrations of feeding a picky eater with autism is that eating isn’t always about the taste of food or even the texture. Often, the reason why your child isn’t eating has to do with presentation.
So your kid really only eats crunchy and chewy foods. Things like crackers, crackers, more crackers, oh, and maybe some chips or pretzels. Food texture preferences combined with picky eating can make creating a balanced meal that your child can and actually wants to eat a challenge.
If you’re feeling defeated every time you make a meal, you’re worried your child isn’t getting the right nutrition, and you’re ready to serve something for snack that isn’t one of those crackers, this meal plan is for you.
