Hi there, My son Christian is 3 and has autism. Getting Christian to eat is really hard and takes alot of effort. He barely touches anything unless it crunches such as goldfish, chips, cereal, etc. I can also get him to eat granola bars and rarely pudding (if its chocolate and cold). I am really worried that he isnt getting the nutrients and vitamins the good healthy stuff that he needs with what he is eating. He throws a fit and gags and crys and pushes things away when I try new things. I am very new to this and his diagnosis and me and his dad have been doing this alone and we are trying everything! Does anyone have any suggestions or help of any kind? Thank you!!
