Getting my kids with #Autism to eat is so difficult



Lately, it’s been more difficult than ever to get Emmett to eat or drink anything.  I really try to accommodate his needs but it’s not easy or cheap.

This goes way beyond picky eating and is sensory related, not to be confused with a child being difficult.

I did get Emmett to eat some sausage tonight and that’s pretty much the bulk of what he’s eaten today. 

He had a granola bar earlier and I had to mix up some Gatorade, just to get him to drink something.  He was getting dehydrated and while Gatorade is full of sugar, it’s something.

I don’t make a huge deal out of it because I don’t want to pressure him and make it worse. 

I can go grocery shopping in about a week and I’ll start stocking up on Popsicles because he does like those.  It will help to keep him hydrated…



It does get frustrating but it’s just one of the things I have to do as an Autism parent…
