Autistic Seka | Autistic people can be sensitive to the taste, smell, colour and texture of food. | Danijela Turner

 
Translation in English of key points.

Autistic people can be sensitive to the taste, smell, colour and texture of food.  

In this video, I will give you some examples of what you can do with some fruits.  

For example, I will not eat bananas which are quite ripe. I don’t like their softness and the smell is too strong for me.

I will only eat bananas if they are firm, even still slightly green. However, if we freeze bananas, then I will use ripened bananas as the ripened smell lessens.   I like the taste of frozen bananas.

Grapes are soft and can crunch in the mouth as you bite them. Some autistic people will not like that texture whilst others may like it.   In our family, we often freeze grapes.

Once frozen, the grape is still somewhat crunchy to bite into but it now of a harder texture as opposed to being so soft.  

We will now show you a recipe my husband uses which uses berries.
