Eating Habits/SPD Diagnosis
(Oakland, Ca. U.S.)
Hi, I've read so many great ideas on this website about how to get our children to eat/try different foods. My son is eight years old, and struggles with food alot. He has not eaten any fruits or vegetables since he was three years old, and there are other foods he has stopped eating also. He has a big problem with the smell of some foods, and will not go near them.
I cannot sneak anything pass him, because he can smell every little thing. I cannot sit at the table and eat with him, unless we are eating the same thing. He cries about the smell of some foods, and has even had meltdowns from the smell in other peoples homes. I am really concerned because he is not getting any fruits or vegetables. I've been giving him a multiple vitamin, but would like to find a way to get him to try fruits and vegetables. Any Suggestions?
