What are mealtimes like at your house? Do you follow a routine? Do you expect your ASD kid to follow the same rules as everyone else, or do you make exceptions for them?

I try to keep meal times at the same time everyday. Breakfast is usually at 6:30am. Lunch at 10:30am and dinner at 5pm. Right now I give Jay what I know he will eat and that is mostly PB sanwiches. Right now I am choosing my battles and food is not one them right now.

Cameron loves his routine. We eat breakfast at 8:30 (eggs or oatmeal), lunch is at noon (usually soup or pasta) and then supper is at 5 and he will eat almost anything I make but he will only eat meat if it's blended in. He's not big on the texture and if you give him a piece he will keep it in his mouth all night until bed time when we finally have him dump it in the garbage. I always try to incorporate one of his faves though. And they are: corn, peas, pasta, rice and lately cheese. He also like yogurt and we're just now getting him to eat bread by putting Nutella on it. He doesn't like to try anything new. He won't eat anything "Take-out" like chicken nuggets, fries, pizza, hamburgers. He's picky, but I love him and we make it work. Thankfully he likes healthy stuff.

Thats great he eats healthy foods. About the only fruit Jay will touch is bananas and applesauce. Veggies forget it.

Cameron will only eat bananas, grapes and apple slices as fruit and will only eat cooked veggies. He doesn't really like anything crunchy or anything new.

Still at age 10, Hunter's diet is still very limited. He eats pretty much the same things over and over again. He does like raw carrots and ranch dressing. that's new the past couple of years.
