Most moms struggle to get their young children to eat healthy food. As the mom of a 3-year-old with autism, this task is even harder. Alden also has sensory processing disorder and struggles with using utensils to eat and can't tolerate the texture of some foods. Due to these sensitivities, his diet consisted mainly of peanut butter sandwiches, apples, crackers or chips. Drinking, however, was something he enjoyed since mastering the use of a straw.
I saw the infomercial for the NutriBullet and thought if there was any way I could trick him into drinking the nutrients he was missing in his limited diet, I would feel so much better. I was concerned about how putting so many things together would taste, maybe he would catch on to my efforts on the first Blast, but with the help of the recipe book, we found several that he really enjoys!
Alden now gets spinach, kale, carrots, celery, bananas, peaches, almonds and so much more into his diet! We have been Blasting for just over a month and I already notice a change in his energy, attention, sleep and I'm amazed we have made it this far into the cold and flu season without a trip to the doctor! In a lifestyle that often leaves me feeling helpless toward my child as he struggles with autism, I'm thankful for the opportunity to take control of his nutrition and fill in the missing pieces with the help of the NutriBullet.
