What a mother won't do to get her kid to eat grapes.
Autism is somewhat synonymous with picky eating. My son is no exception. He wants to like grapes. He wants to eat grapes. He likes the smell. He likes the taste. The texture? It gags him to the point of vomiting. I have tried nearly everything. I have tried little grapes, large grapes, peeling the grapes, squeezing the juice and flesh from the grapes, even slicing them in half. Tonight we had a breakthrough! He said, "Mommy, I think you finally solved the texture problem!" I sliced them and I diced them, into itty bitty, teeny tiny bits that he can nearly just swallow! GRAPES! Could this be called the grapes of wrath....no longer?
