Careful What You Say

Wednesday, 7 July 2010

Beernut has a love/hate relationship with food. [Actually, Beernut has a love/hate relationship with most everything….] And it goes beyond picky-eating. I should know. I am from the picky-eaters. His issues with food have more to do with his Asperger’s and it can make mealtime incredibly difficult for him and for his dining companions.

In order to make his JewCamp experience a more positive one, we talked a lot about how important it is to make good food choices as well as stay hydrated. “I have no control over the menu, Beernut, and you have no control over the menu,” I warned him. “So you just need to eat what is served. Worst case scenario, there’s always peanut butter and jelly.”

Out of the seven meals we have had so far, Beernut has had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for at least four of them.

Dinner tonight? Taco salad with nacho chips. Beernut has strict orders from his orthodontist NOT to eat chips.

But Mom, you told me to eat what is served, remember? And I just don’t think it would be a good choice to have another peanut butter sandwich.
