Holiday Tip #7 for Parents of Children with Autism

It’s 6 days to Christmas and there are special holiday foods. My son’s
GFCF favorites are always on the menu, keeping him in a joyful mood!
Dec. 19            Day 7   Choice—after all, it’s Christmas.
Let your child decide what he wants to eat for the Christmas meal.
Traditionally, we have a Christmas Brunch but my son can’t eat
the main course because it’s not GFCF. So I let him write his
own menu [which is a great skill!]. Take it a step further and
have him help you shop for his special meal. It’s worth taking
the extra time because all this can help reduce mealtime stress
and anxiety during the holidays.
HO! HO! HO!
