The effort to feed a resistant eater a more nutritious and varied diet. What works, what doesn't.
I am a mother of two daughters, one (called H) who is an adventurous eater like her mom, and one (called E) who has autism, sensory processing disorder and is a "resistant eater". There is not a lot of information that I could find for resistant eating, so I decided to blog my culinary efforts with E.
I recently purchased the Meal Makeovers cookbook and this was the first recipe I tried. I made these for breakfast. They hide canned pumpkin. Talk about sneaking a vegetable in early in the day. The color was not any noticeably different since my kids are used to whole grain 'brown' pancakes. I did tell E what was in them after she ate two and proclaimed them "beautiful". She had requested no chocolate chips though as chocolate is apparently "not a breakfast food". She also said pancakes must be good hiding places as she didn't see any pumpkin in there. Have to love that literal view of the world at times. The link for the recipe is above the photo.
