I was wondering if anyone had a bit of guidance. From what I have read, my son does not have SID, however, he has an EXTREMELY cautious temperment. One of the ways this manifests itself is through food; he is 2.5 and has not tried a new food in well over a year (which is a lot of his life!). He was almost exclusively bf for the first two years of life and has recently cut down quite a bit; his appetite has increased somewhat, but not his sense of adventure toward food. He basically wants to eat the same 10 foods or so over and over (most are grains - dry toast, a PARTICULAR type of cracker, etc.- with only 1 fruit and two vegetables, and the vegetables have to be from a certain restaurant!). I know food jags are typical with toddlers and tend to peak at this age, but I am beginning to think he will NEVER try anything new. What I am wondering from you all is: if anyone has experience with OT concerning food issues and, if so, what kind of activities this therapy would entail that I might be able to replicate at home. (I have basically tried everything and now I just continue to offer, offer, offer). He is at the lower end of the growth chart, but has been since one year of age. He looks and acts very healthy. Any advice? Do I just ride it out? Thanks in advance.
