Can you relate to this 1 major challenge of #Autism Parenting? 

I find it incredibly difficult to ensure that my kids with Autism maintain a balanced diet. For that matter, I have such a hard time simply getting my kids to eat anything.

We are very much a sensory oriented family and that presents many obstacles for me as a parent. The biggest being how unbelievably sensitive my two youngest are when it comes to things like texture, smell, color, presentation, shape and yes, even packaging.

When there is literally only a handful of things your child will eat, aiming for a balanced diet becomes a pipe dream.

How many of you can relate to my experience? Please share examples of your challenges with feeding issues in the comments below…
