Q. My 5 years old son with autism is hesitant to try with new foods. My 5 years old son with autism is hesitant to try with new foods. His diet consists of goldfish crackers, Ritz bits, Cheese and fruit puffs... that's it. He used to eat fruit, but now he is not willing to try anything. We have had all the GI tests; everything is fine. We give him gummy style vitamins with fruit snacks, thank god he takes those. We need some fresh ideas for introducing food. Any ideas…

A. As your son is rejecting entire food groups, you must consult a specialist. The only thing is that he must have lost on his hunger and he eats what he only likes. You can try like stopping any foods for a day say on holiday and feed on fruit puffs and check if his hunger comes back and he should be eating what is available. Or you can give him different recipes and find if he likes any.
