I have a 11 year old son that is severe sensory to food taste, smells and texture only eats pepperoni pizza, pasta with no sauces or butter just plain, chicken nuggets, fries, and a few other things. How can I make him overcome his eating sensory I would like him to try other foods and eat healthy
I'd like to know the answer to this too. The professionals have not been very helpful yet. My daughter of 3 is similar with perhaps a bigger range of foods but only bad foods and snack goods. She won't touch dinner unless it's fast food. I keep offering and she keeps going to bed hungry. She'll eat any biscuit, cheese, yoghurt, apple is the only fruit, no vegetables, occasionally plain rice, sometimes pasta, dried sugary fruit cubes, lollies and chips of course, sometimes chicken nuggets and muesli bars. Does hot chocolate count?
At least mine is getting plenty calcium but I'm not happy. Good luck with your son and I hope someone can helpus
