Over the Rainbow: Getting Kids with Autism to Try Colorful Foods

Feeding a child on the spectrum with picky eating can be challenging for a variety of reasons. To name a few:

  • Your son/daughter may be more sensitive to taste, texture, smell, or temperature
  • He/she may have skill delays that make using utensils, or even chewing or swallowing, difficult
  • Your child may crave predictability and want the same meal night after night
  • Your child could experience discomfort related to eating such as heartburn or tummy aches
