I need advice please!
Me and my son had a fight last night because he has become so limmited in his foods that he wants to eat that he didnt want to eat what I made for supper....
He always ate the chicken I made....now suddenly he doesnt want to eat it anymore....He used to love fish fingers, now he wont touch it...not even sausage....He will now only eat it if it was barbequed on the fire.
He only wants to eat 2 minutes noodles, or chicken nugets or chicken patties for supper.....Ham and cheese for lunch and cereal for breakfast....He wil also eat eggs, some hamburgers, bacon and some potato wedges and certain type of fish. Thats it! I cant keep on making 2 sepperate menu's!
Oh and he will eat rusks and bread....and off caurse sweets!
He doesnt eat ANY veggies or fruit! He is becoming over weight!
What do I do....Do I leave him to starve until he eats what we eat?
Or do I say....ok some ASD kids has limited food what they are willing to eat and give him chicken nuggets every evening!
He wont settle for just trying one bite of something new! He is rigid in that thought!
How far do I allow his rigidity in this matter and how far do I need to push!?
Any suggestions.....Rewards and that kind of stuff wont work!
I just want to know if I must give in to this behaviour or must I be firm and say that he eats what we eat or he can go to bed hungry.....
