Keep serving all the food with a safe option! My daughter finally got the ARFID diagnosis, but they were so impressed with the range of foods she eats (her issue has always been intake amount). They congratulated me on how I always serve the same food for everyone (plus the safe food) and said that’s def what makes the difference!

How do they know if the food gets wasted? Maybe you or your husband eats the left overs. Maybe it’s given to a family pet. Who’s to say. Even if it goes straight to the trash…are they paying for it? Don’t let what they say bother you.

sounds like they don't even know what they're talking about. you KNOW best and YOU know your child best. Take heart, you're doing an amazing job from the sounds of it and your child will benefit. Some people will not understand but you know what's right for your baby!

That’s exactly what my parents have said and guess what?!? They’re not paying for my food and if I want to try everything under the sun To get my child to eat and find something they like I will. I could care less what anyone has to say! What you should do is tell your parents that is not their job to be so negative!!

Do they think he’s going to magically just start eating someday? I mean there is a level of just giving in, but that’s to not stress about him not eating what you offer, you aren’t supposed to completely stop offering things! It’s so draining constantly watching them turn their nose up at what we offer, but we gotta keep doing it (as much as our mental health allows). It’s so hard when people just don’t get it

F them that's stupid. Food will be wasted no matter what you do. Octopus hot dog what a great idea. I'll have to try that! You rock seriously just try to shake it off. Who knows maybe your little one would eat everything on the plate. Sometimes its just a nibble we never know. We are in charge of putting options on the plate they are in charge of eating.

Out of all of this, remember your sister has got you. Parents think they know all but times have changed, and they aren't the parents anymore. They just don't have anything else to talk about. Don't take it personally. It's them not you.
