Autism and picky eating

In the beginning, my son was a very, very picky eater, and I have heard that that's really common with autistic children. And I didn't understand what that was about either. I'd feed him a jar of food and he'd have a funny reaction to a bite and he'd throw up everything that he ate. And then he would only eat certain things, which created a lot of stress. And I think it's very typical from autistic children, from what I hear. So it was a sign, too, in the beginning. I went, "Oh, yeah. That's different too."
