( The pediatrician said this is common for kids on special diets to become intolerant of them). My daughter never took solid foods and still doesn't.
Therefore, she is tube feed. Does your son eat solids? If so have you tried high fat foods like avocados and butter.
He doesn't really eat solids...he wants to but he still gags and can't really tolerate anything w/ texture.
