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 think I am done...for now
I have considered for a long time now whether to continue this blog or not. When I started, I needed an outlet for my frustrations with my beautiful yet terribly resistant eater. Over time, I think I've become more patient and take any rejection of food less personally. I also believe that my daughter, E, has developed some small sense of adventure towards food - at least she will try a small bite of new foods some of the time, as opposed to outright refusal. Consequently, I have less to write about - at least in terms of her eating habits - and I have been thinking on and off that this blog has served its purpose for the time being.
My decision was made when she tried a piece of this:
Mushroom, Leek, and gorgonzola cheese galette
She didn't like it, but she tried it with a very enthusiastic "can I have that?"
And that was so very good to hear and feel. So it is on that note, that I will say this is possibly my last post here.
