We’re in the kitchen today, talking with Jenny Friedman, “The Autism Nutritionist,” about how to help change your child’s relationship with food.
Kids with autism are often some of the most picky eaters. Often averse to trying anything new, they stick with the same foods day after day, making it difficult to ensure they are receiving the proper nutrition.
In my conversation with Jenny Friedman, we cover many topics surrounding feeding out kids on the spectrum including special diets, tips for more peaceful mealtimes and how to expand their palates.
In this episode you will discover:
- How food chaining can help your child expand their palate.
- How you can make mealtime a less stressful event.
- Answers to our top questions from listeners about food.
- Ways you can serve foods that can help children be more willing to try them.
- A free downloadable guide from Jenny that will help you make these changes today.
