Acceptable “Junk” Food
It is not unusual for some children with autism to be extremely limited in their food choices. What if fries and other not-so-healthy choices are among the very few options that your child will eat? Try to offer a healthier version of the favored food. For example, roasted potato rounds (or cut into fry shapes) can provide a healthy alternative to French fries. If your child won't try them when first served, try again in the future.
