Hi everyone! I wanted to make a part two of my last post! My previous post talked about how to make going to restaurants easier if your loved one has ARFID. Today I wanted to share a few more tips!
The first tip is to share the menu ahead of time with your loved one. This helps them feel more prepared for when they get to the restaurant, since they know what to expect. Speaking of knowing what to expect, it can be helpful to show some photos of the restaurant, because there will be less surprises when they get there, since they’ve seen what the restaurant looks like!
My final tip is to let your loved one pick a dessert for their meal if none of the entrees appeal to them. If there’s a dessert with high calories, they can have that instead! It’s better than not eating anything! Anyway, I hope these tricks helped you! Have a great day!
