Recently dx/ diet questions

Our 8 yo son was recently diagnosed with Asperger's. Due to his sensory issues he eats very few foods and is heavy in the carbs and sugars. I have been reading about the Asperger's diet and was wondering 1) if anyone had success if changing diet and 2) what tips people had for getting our son to try/eat different foods. If he doesn't like what is being served, he often will not eat.

thank you in advance,
Kim

Hi Kim,

I know this was posted a long time ago, but I thought I would give you our experience with changing diet.

1) We had incredible success with changing our son's diet.
