Hi Everyone 😊
As an Autism Parent one if our biggest battles is getting our kiddos to try new foods. Chloe has a very limited palate like most. Over the years different foods have been introduced. She usually won’t even try them.
I made some air popped popcorn and sat down to watch our movie. She kept staring at my bowl. Then she reached in and took one piece out. I said “Try it, its crunchy”! She nibbled at it and put it back in my bowl. A few minutes later she grabbed another piece and ate it. Her face was strained as if she wasn’t to sure about it’s texture. I kept encouraging her to try another one. She ended up eating 5 pieces. VICTORY!!
Her Dad has tried for years to get her to try popcorn. She would always say “No Thanks”. So even eating 5 pieces is a victory in my book😊
Little victories are still victories in our world. What food do you want your kids to try?
