For extremely picky eaters, there is a non-profit parent's organization called the POPSICLE Center.

To expand on the rewards approach using a systematic approach - search for a local BCBA (certified behaviorist) that deals with feeding issues. This would be a home-based option instead of uprooting to attend an intensive feeding clinic. Start by calling your local autism centers (child does not have to be on the spectrum for them to help). Even if they do not handle feeding, they may be able to point you in the direction of someone who does. Note: Medical issues should be ruled out or in treatment before starting a behavioral approach.
