My son has more smell issues than taste. If a food smells to strong, hell gag. Junk food has a cretain smell about it, appatising (bummer for us).
I'm one of those ladies, although my DS won't even try "all" junk food. Trick or Treating is just for the fun of it & his little sister gets anything that is not plain chocolate.
Yes, this is how one OT explained it to me. There are more than 5 senses, there are the senses within our body as well. Eating takes every single sense we have. We see, touch, smell, hear and taste our food. Then every single part of our body is doing something while we eat. It is actually one of the most complicated things our bodies do.
So if you put eating at the top of the pyramid and there are holes below it, it is not very stable.
So, even if you cannot see all the sensory problems, this type of eating is a sign there could be a problem.
The OT we are seeing has us do this. We take 3 foods per week. We are concentrating on foods he will probably come into contact with a lot while eating school lunch (he's 1/2-day
