Holding Out

I threw in the towel on getting Ben to eat anything besides cereal and crackers a long time ago so I was flabbergasted when he just up and ate a slice of Costco pizza like it was nothing. Ben's diet is a very complicated and frustrating issue--his severe sensory issues prevent him from eating anything that isn't crunchy in texture. Ben will gag at the mere touch of certain food and will throw anything offered to him that isn't to his liking. We've been working on getting Ben to simply tolerate keeping food on his plate for the past three feeding therapy sessions, so you can understand my confusion/surprise/excitement when he ate a peice of pizza. Oh Benny, I can't wait until you discover all of the other yummy things just waiting to be eaten!
