I think I have created a monster. The enemy is food for my sensory kid. My DS5 is five and has been under therapy since 2. He had a speech delay (spoke no words at 3, about 50 at 4 and is pretty much caught up now), intense sensory/rigidity at 3 so much so that the school was thinking autism but that was ruled out by 4. He has indeed come along way. He finally was toilet trained by his 5th birthday (still goes #2 in his pull ups at night those *grr*). He has adjusted to Kindy pretty well and the teacher is great about working with his need for routine. He has services for speech, OT and reading. Anyways, he has made such progress in so many areas that we have one major one to work on-- food. He ate great as an infact, okay as a toddler and now a total monster. He used to eat eggs, yogurt & pizza, but now I can count on both hands what he will eat - eveything else is 'yucky': crackers, peanut butter, chicken nuggets, goldfish, cereal & milk, pretzels (big ones), hotcakes & waffles, Kraft Mac & Cheese (no other will do) and maybe, if he is in the mood - fishsticks. Oh and sweets - candy, cake frosting (not the cake), ice cream and popsicles. He takes vitamins every night. He REFUSES fruits & vegetables in every form whether as a juice, mashed, cooked or raw or smoothered in cheese. We indulged him because we were fighting other battles--talking & pooping on the potty. It appears to be affecting his behavior. All those carbs cannot be good for his blood sugar and it is probably taking a dip because an hour or two before bed for about a week now he has been having fits. At his 5 year check-up this past July I told the pedi about his food fetishes and she expressed no concern. Now I am. Do I take him to the pedi or a nutritionist for advice on how to get him to eat? Hubby wants to go cold turkey on 'junk' knowing that his body will demand food and he'll be forced to eat what we give him. I think with a sensory kid this is more trouble than its worth. And what do I do about school? I don't want food drama there (I already pack a lunch with the permissables - see older thread) or behavioral problems stemming from hunger. Ugh - what do I do? Thanks for reading and even more thanks for responding.
