According to my DS's therapist he is not just a picky eater - he does have an actual phobia of food. So last night I asked about the fear -- after years of struggle you forget your kid can communicate better -- and he was able to break it down as a fear of taste.
On the way home I asked how he felt about his therapist and he said he was excited, it gave him something to look forward too. Now I just assumed it was for the play therapy section of it. But then when we got home he said, 'then maybe mom when I go back to swim I can get past level one & maybe I can start to eat too.'
Arrrrgh, just about broke my heart. This kid wants nothing more than to be a good kid. He knows how much his eating puts a toll on our family & he really doesn't like it.
