I have a 7 year old boy with ASD, SPD, and language impairment and he lives off peanut butter, cheese, crackers, milk, tea, will not try new things gags at the table when we eat, has a very sensitive smell (strong) things we cant even smell he does, I dont know if he's getting all he needs , the Docs say his fine for his age just looks pale, Any ideas?

My daughter with SPD is very difficult to feed as well. Some foods she cannot even stand the sight of! Our OT recommended we see a speech therapist for help with her eating issues. We have been going for several months now and it seems to be helping. She has taught me about food chaining which we are doing, their are books about it available. Hope that helps you some.
