I have a friend with a six year old with what I would consider moderate-severe to severe Selective Eating Disorder, with the primary cause being food texture


6 year old son or daughter?

which blood type?

how is the his mental status, any spectrum problems visible in which case any casein prodcut could be bad, and peptide or glutamate's would also be a problem and may cause attention problems.

Vanilla and especially sucralose would be downright dangerous!

he is probably getting enough asppartame already in the drugs dear help him.

sounds like he is becoming addicted to the powdwered stuff.

assuming he has no other problems, i would revert to live vegetables and plain meat (as  a B, and use a food procesor. as little fuss as possible so he is not trained to get exactly what he wants as oppsoed to the parents giving him the foods he needs.

Excerpt taken from section 5B Safety of Amino acids......

It would be wise to avoid the use of glutamic acid by pregnant women, infants and children.

If the 6 yr old likes pizza then try giving him a rice cake with melted ghee & mozzarella cheese.  Will he eat rice?  You can mix herbs in the rice.  Can you add the Omega to his milk shake?  Will he eat eggs?

If his tastes are mild, then he may be a super taster.

I don't mean to be rude but I was a very picky eater as a child and back then no one diagnosed their 6 year old as having an eating disorder.

Good point Sahara, I imagine that the difference is that your parents were a little stronger than some today who think it's acceptable to give the child what he wants because it's easier. some people call them wimps ;)also of course there was not so much msg and aspartame etc etc in those days;) even less in mine.

I would not eat spaghetti in the 1970s and frequently refused to eat the barbecue my dad brought home after work.  My parents did not know what to do with me, we fought a lot about it, but fortunately my mom kept us busy and on the go so we just ate small little hamburgers and fries and though I was sick often I have such good memories of those happy meals that it was probably all worth it.  Otoh the whole problem shifted as a teen and so sure, that we could never agree about food was a problem.  But isn't the whole culture lost about food?   ??)  I mean just in general?  Idk I think a return to meat and sweet potatoes would be a step in the right direction for the majority of Os and if people can do the best they can to get their kids to eat their meat so they can their dessert we'd probably all be a little better off.  But parents have to decide this and have to enforce it.  My mother said about her childhood that she was made to "eat what was put in front of her."  Good, classic O upbringing.  I feel this is healthier than putting a child in a box at such a young age.  The issue is adults not children.
