Eating and Feeding and Autism

Many people on the autism spectrum have problems with eating, feeding and drinking.

For example, some people with autism may

- not recognise they are hungry, so they don't eat

- be very fussy over what they will eat

- be very fussy about how, where and when they will eat

- have problems chewing and swallowing some food

- drink much too much, even though they are not really thirsty

- eat things they find on the floor or elsewhere.
