My 7 year old son has autism, he is an extremely fussy eater - will only eat bread, peanut butter, one particular brand of jam, nutrigrain, milk & milo (mixed together), one brand of chicken nuggets and some chips, apple juice, salada biscuits with vegemite, choc chip cookies, water. He will (of course) eat lollies, ice cream, chips etc- but having said that, not all sorts if he hasn't seen them before. Does anyone have any ideas to expand on his diet? Previously, if he has given up a food, he hasn't replaced it with anything, so although some of the stuff he eats is not brilliant, we are loathe to remove it in case that's the last time he eats it!
