I've tried that with chicken, but she's still rejecting it. I stopped giving her favorite drinks so she isn't filling up on those. I give them to her after she has eaten food. It's getting to where she is taking one or two pea-sized bites of meals. Sometimes, not even that.
I understand these kids have oral sensivity, but any ideas why she would be further limiting her food choices? I kind of thought she'd expand as she got older? What does anyone do or know about oral sensitivity and how I can help her? How can I get her to try fruits, veggies and meat? She simply gags on it at this point. Right now, she is living on waffles, potato chips, popcorn, dinner rolls. She recently has stopped eating chicken noodle soup and spaghetti as well.
