Diets in Review Question

What is the next step we should try to help our picky eater?

Marlene Macbeth asked this question May 30th, 2011 12:23 pm

My granddaughter has had feeding issues from birth with not apparent physical diagnosis apparent. As an infant she could only breast feed on one breast without unusual positioning. Today at 3.5 she will try some yogurt or smooth type foods but she exists on a diet of pediasure. We have tried everything to coax her and have even forced her when she stopped drinking pediasure for a time. Any suggestions or places we could go to get her evaluated. I know it is a sensory based disorder but the therapists who have been helping her are stymied.

This question is about Do Picky Eaters Have an Eating Disorder?

Our best advice would be to consult with your family physician or get a referral to a new therapist for a second opinion. Some information here on DietsInReview that you might also find helpful:
