Whole Foods Snack Haul

543px-Whole_Foods_Market_logo.svg

Liam has quite a restricted diet, which can be common with kids with autism. I have had some people say to me “Oh he will eat when he gets hungry enough” which is NOT the case with kids with sensory issues. They will go hungry indefinitely before they will eat something that can trigger a sensory issue.

I have been looking for ways to get Liam to eat more protein and veggies. He seems to really enjoy carbs (he is totally my son!) and will eat chips, french fries and crackers until he explodes. He will occasionally eat grilled cheese, PB & J and chicken nuggets. However, even those items are not really healthy.

Then, I saw this video on my Youtube Feed and a light bulb went off!

We are not a Gluten Free/Vegetarian/Vegan household, but that is no reason not to start trying some of those foods! If I can sneak Liam foods that have veggies and protein, that would make things so much easier! Also, Trent and I are trying to eat healthier, so it would be good for us also!

Here are some of the snacks I purchased and we are going to be testing over the next few weeks!

Beanitos Nacho Cheese. These actually taste pretty close to Nacho Cheese Doritos! Liam has been scarfing these down!

Thanks for reading!
