Picky Eating Article from TIME

Today's article from TIME magazine connecting picky eaters with Autism is very interesting. Jackson was an amazing eater until 18 months old, when he just suddenly stopped eating most foods and focused on only a few. He's now an incredibly picky eater with a mainly white foods diet (with allergies to peanuts and tree nuts to boot). Very interesting to note that there may be a connection between picky food choices and Autism.

  1. We noticed that with our son too! We rotate around hot dogs, chicken and french fries, and white rice. He hates sauce except ranch, and always complains about what's on his plate. I let him snack almost constantly so that I know he's getting something in his stomach!

    Does Jackson often complain of being to cold or to hot? Al has troubles controling his body temp which is another symptom.
