 Dillon actually will! He loves stuffing, mashed potatoes and turkey with lots of gravy, so PHEW!LOL! But I also will include things that aren't traditional but that he loves like pigs in a blanket eye rollingand he loves making them, too!

Are you making anything untraditional for your kids?turkey dinner

Nope... If McDonalds made a turkey nugget he might try it. Lol

we are going to my SILs.. So Ill bring a slice or 2 of pizza for him or a bagel. 

he will eat carrots and broccoli from the crudite platter. He just has so many oral sensitivites and thanksgiving with a house full of people is not a day to make him stretch. Its a hard enough day with out of his house, 3.5 hours in the car, 26 people in the house... So, ill bring him comfortable food. ;)

Oh, heck no!  My son with ASD will eat the same lunch he pretty much does every day; sunbutter sandwich cut into squares, goldfish crackers or square pretzels, apple sauce or banana, and I got him his fav - hostess chocolate cupcakes for when we all have pie.  He is welcome to eat anything available we have but will probably only eat the rolls, lol!  And my little daughter with downs will be doing her usual baby/soft foods but may get her to eat some mashed potatoes!  My other two will probably eat some of it, especially if I tell my daughter it is chicken.  And tell my oldest he is almost 11 (and NT) and this is what we eat on Thanksgiving.  If he doesn't fill up and is a bit hungry I am confident he will pack it away at a later meal to catch up, and he's already planning a big breakfast!

we are going to my inlaws. No jonathan won't eat traditional thanksgiving stuff. He might eat the potatoes and that is about it. I have spoken to my in laws and they understand and said they will make whatever he likes
