I have never been good with the food I eat, surprisingly I don’t eat a lot, I just eat all of the wrong things. I’m not a lover of fruit or veg but I changed my eating habits when I was pregnant and with the help of Annabel Karmel we ate very well whilst I was on maternity leave. I even started to loose weight!
Fast forward two years throw a very tired working mummy and an autistic toddler into the mix and you have a recipe for disaster. Needless to say our eating habits have slowly and surely gone downhill.
Ethan used to eat really well but since September and our continuous bouts of illness he isn’t eating much, sometimes not at all. This could be put down to two things the terrible two’s or autistic traits. According to all the information I have read autism can bring with it fussy eaters and a love for carbs, Ethan loves carbs!
At the moment we know that Ethan will eat the following, on his terms
- Chips (McDonald’s!)
- Toast with Nutella
- Angel Slices (another of Ethan’s obsessions!)
- Garlic Bread
My terrible excuse for things going downhill is the lack of choice and not being able to buy the quantities I want from ASDA home shopping. I have searched and searched their website and although they say you can order quantities I can’t get it to work.
