Many people on the autism spectrum have problems with eating, feeding and drinking.
For example, some people with autism may
- not recognise they are hungry, so they don't eat
- be very fussy over what they will eat
- be very fussy about how, where and when they will eat
- have problems chewing and swallowing some food
- drink much too much, even though they are not really thirsty
- eat things they find on the floor or elsewhere.
