Autism Spectrum Disorder Research Suggests Good Nutrition May Manage Symptoms


While the medical community may not have identified the exact causes of ASD, much has been learned about the challenges ASD patients face that often lead to poor diet quality. These include problems with sensory processing, eating behaviors, and feeding disorders. It’s estimated that 46% to 89% of patients with ASD experience some kind of problem-eating behavior.15 Some feeding difficulties revolve around changes in routine. For example, patients with ASD may refuse to eat unless they sit in the same place at the table, eat on the same dishes, use the same tablecloth, and eat the same foods daily.15 The slightest change in routine can cause a tantrum or result in the refusal to eat.
