I am a mom but am a caregiver to my 9 year old grandson who has sensory and is high functioning autism..he won't eat fruits or veggies either..even tried broccolu w cheese...its not going to happen...he has issues because he won't eat them.

What type of foods does he like to eat? It is so easy to hide vegetables in most foods. My pasta sauce consists of grated zucchini, carrot, sweet potato and finely shredded cabbage or Brussel sprouts and the kids have no idea that it is in there. I also hide veggies in pies, blended into stews, lasagne and so many more meals. Have you tried getting time to help prepare the fruit and veg for meals? I found my kids seem to eat more of the right foods when they are in the kitchen helping me prepare it. Also making food fun can help as well, you can make fruit kebabs with yogurt dipping sauce, use cookie cutters to make fun shapes with fruit and veg, orange or apple echidnas using toothpicks, sultanas, grapes.
