I’ve been on the subject of dietary needs lately. Many families struggle to get their child on the #autism spectrum to eat, on daily basis.
This is something that the Lost and Tired family is currently working through.
I got to thinking this morning about something and I wanted to share it with you and get your thoughts.
Basically, I was wondering how you balance eating healthy with vs eating anything at all? Does that make sense? Let me give you an example of what I mean.
Right now, the only thing that Elliott will eat, is pretty much East of Chicago pizza. I don’t know what it is about it that agrees with him but he will almost always eat that if offered.
My concern is that he can’t live on East of Chicago pizza, nor can we afford for him to live on it.
However, in the absence of any other viable options, what are we supposed to do?
When you have a picky eater that isn’t just being difficult, how to you balance healthy eating vs eating anything at all?
Does that make sense?
