My two boys, Jimmy and Rory, have severe autism. For many years, they would eat only the most plain, boring stuff (chicken nuggets, mashed potatoes, pasta, etc). With different stuff they would try to throw it away and older one would make gagging noises (not to be rude, just texture issues). They have gradually gotten better at trying new things the past few years.
Finally, last summer I decided the whole family is all going to eat the same meals, no matter what . . . and they have! Every single thing I’ve made from Trim Healthy Mama/Trim Healthy Table they have gobbled up (hubby and daughter, too). Today they both ate every bite of their Whoop Whoop soup for lunch! So I’m on a roll here in CA and one happy mama.
