Be careful with picky eaters advice!

Please note that picky eating can be a sign of an food allergy and or a GI issue. For instance, our son was a picky eater and was put through much rigor for sensory integration diagnosis. However by 3 years old, we found out he was a picky eater BECAUSE he has Eosinophilic esophagitis (EE) http://allergies.about.com/od/foodallergies/a/ee.htm


I would put this advise on your web page. The symptoms of his particular disease were NOT dramatic but his biopsies after upper endoscopy revealed an extreme case of the disorder.

I am implore you to acknowledge this on your web page please!
