Things are still tricky but this Easter day my brave 15 year old has managed a bite sized chocolate brownie, and a tiny gold wrapped egg. She enjoyed them, then said don't expect her to eat chocolate tomorrow. But last year she couldn't eat any chocolate and did'nt touch a single egg, so for me today is a happy day! She also asked for orange juice last week, she hasnt drunk this for a year due to the sugar content!
That is really great, Faddywrite. I think she might have said that sentence about "don´t expect me to eat that again tomorrow" to give you a sign that she wants to do that tomorrow again, maybe think about giving her some for snack again.
Keep feeding. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
Oh yes we will definitely be encouraging to have another treat tomorrow.
