Parents Q&A – How to get your child to eat different food

Parent’s concern:
My daughter is a picky and slow eater. She only eats things she likes and when she eats anything she hates (green vegetable) she will puke it out. Very hard to deal with, anything I can do to make her eat more different things?

Picky eating is a common problem among children with ASD. Children with ASD usually have strong preferences in their dieting and will go very stern on refusing eating the food that they dislike. Take a look at the below clip and see how to get your child to eat different food.
