Sorry Janet yes my son has a very restricted diet because he restricts himself. Has always since a baby. It's become so bad that we are tearing our hair out as hes losing weight and tiers easily. Hes on iron supplements but is a growing teenager. He's been under many dieticians but no one has any answers and they seem to give up after a while. Just don't know what to do next.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Sorry, I just want to clarify the question - do you give him a restricted diet, or does he self restrict and will only eat certain things?

I have a bit of both, but they're for different reasons, so wanted to clarify what you were asking exactly.

Thanks!
