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…

This is one of our biggest challenges. Lately my little one had been trying new foods though.
