Healthy Eating and Autism

Posted on March 26, 2018

Caring for a child on the spectrum is very challenging and healthy eating is no exception. A diet that is nutritious and balanced can make a world of difference when it comes to learning and managing emotions. Starting a dialogue and talking with other parents and caregivers about healthy eating is best done alongside others who understand the obstacles and the rewards.

On MyAutismTeam, the social network and online support group for parents of kids with autism, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Healthy eating is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about healthy eating:

Medications and vitamins. Any advice?

My son is overeating. Any advice?

Has anyone had positive results with a gluten-free diet?

Here are some conversations about healthy eating:

My daughter is eight years old. I have been having a big challenge with her eating habits.

We tried kefir milk and my son had a reaction.

My son will eat until the point of misery. I want to have a plan to teach him about eating healthy and what food does to our bodies.

Can you relate?
