How can we respond if your child does not want to EAT?

Are you worried because your child

  • refuses most of what you give him to eat or drink?
  • insists on a very restricted diet with predominantly sweet and starchy foods?
  • wants to eat all the time, and the food scattered everywhere?

This is a common problem. For some reason, some children have difficulty with the most basic milestones of early development and parents are desperate for support to help their child.

Your child can learn to EAT so you don't have to worry anymore and your family can eat together in peace.

    Suddenly he took a slice of pizza from her plate and began to eat it.

When I was the modin At the age of 5, he was nonverbal and ate only chips, candy and white bread with Nutella. He was used to helping himself. His mother tried to hide the candies and the Nutella jar. But he found them every time. It took more than a year to convince his mother that it was possible for children with an autism diagnosis to eat other foods. Finally, she stopped buying Nutella. Modin was furious: He sat down at the table and screamed. In the meantime, many things had changed: Each child had a child-sized chair at the table, which was one of the helpful daily routines. His mother quietly placed the empty plate in front of him and ignored his screaming. It was pizza day and the rest of the family sat down to eat. Suddenly, he snatched a slice of pizza off her plate and started eating it. I couldn't believe it: I never thought he would eat pizza," his mother told me.
