Food difficulty 1996

I always said Lindsey would starve herself. Autism presented a major sensory defense to food. I worried about Lindsey’s low weight. She had limited her choices and got stuck on those. It was milk and grapes. Years of trying different tricks never worked. We even tried using Burger King wrappers that chicken nuggets came in. She knew homemade chickens nuggets looked different. It wasn’t until age 10 when we could finally reason with her about food. She had years of leaky gut issues, and many hospital stays. Lindsey went gluten free at age 10. 16 years later she is the best eater and has a healthy weight.
