My son is a very picky eater. Does anyone know any good books on eating issues?

I know Nourishing Hope for Autism by Julie Matthews has a section on picky eaters in it. Its a great book to point you in the right direction for getting our kids on the right track with the right foods and supplements. Here is an article she wrote (here)

She also has some great youtube videos, either look up Julie Matthews or look up nourishing hope.

 Mone has always been a picky eater, but so is my husband and other son. They're all a pain in my butt to be honest...lol.

No books but one thing that has worked wonders with my boy- He would eat anything until about 3 and then texture started to bother him. I have found that when I get him involved with preparing his food and shopping, picking out things he seems to be more open to trying new foods. Jerry Sienfelds wife wrote a great cook book about how to "hide" health foods in things kids like but don't know it that is the route you want to go...
