Parent Seeks Advice: Child with Autism Eats Only Candy & Chips
I’ve heard that kids with autism will eventually eat if they’re hungry enough. I’m considering taking away the hard candy, chips and crackers that our daughter snacks on all day to see if she will learn to eat real food. I’ve tried giving her nutritious foods in the past, but nothing worked. Still I worry. If I take her junk food away, will she starve herself? Should I just get tough and go ahead with this?
