Aspergers Syndrome and Nutrition
A lot has been written by so-called medical experts about what causes AS and how it can be ‘cured’. All bunk! Any parent of someone with AS knows it can’t be ‘cured’ and can’t be ‘treated’.
This is not about that: this piece is about getting someone with AS to eat healthily. Not an easy task! You don't need me to tell you that Aspies are the most pernickety people when it comes to eating – only food the same colour, certain foods are not ‘allowed’ to touch certain other foods etc etc. Getting Aspies to eat healthily is a nightmare. Not any more! Here’s a tried and tested system to allow you to do that. It’s called the NUTRiBULLET, and it’s a food grinder/processor which mashes up raw constituent foods (with water) into a drink.
I have made my son a mix of seaweed, broccoli, spinach, avocado and carrots (all raw – and very healthy) and he drinks it without a murmur. It tastes vile but because it’s the right colour and I give it to him in a nice clean cup, down it goes. In one big slurp. He’s now getting all the nutrients he needs – and I’m feeling like a good parent!
