    My grandson, 2 1/2 will only eat baby food. He will eat junk, potatoe chips, cookies, chocolate, crackers, pretzels. And he will eat pancakes, waffles and cereal. When it comes to regular table food he spits it out or gags. We have tried many ways of giving him table food and disguising it but once it is in his mouth he spits it out most times. He does not even chew. The other day we gave him cheesy potatoes and he actually gagged and spit up. He was diagnosed with autism and one time but that diagnosis was wrong, he went to the Cleveland Autistic Center and they tested him. His pediatrition believes he has a behavioral issue and possibly some type of spectrum disorder. He has always had a issue with texture, we cannot even get him to eat mashed potatoes, whipping cream, pudding, cake, popcicles and other items. Any suggestions. We are currently waiting to take him to another center for testing but the poor little guy needs to gain some weight and needs to eat some food. Thanks.
