Sensory Stories # 48: Fussy adult eaters exist too

Posted: 4 August, 2022

By: Marieta du Toit


In the previous vlog, Annemarie talked about fussy eating in children and gave some advice on how to address it. Marieta takes a different angle in this video, where she talks about fussy eating habits in adults.

Marieta discusses the idea of fussy eating as a method of self-regulation, particularly in sensory avoiders, people with low sensory thresholds. Her message to us is that it’s ok if you like to eat your food separately, don’t like your food touching or choose not to eat certain foods based on their texture… just as long as you’re looking after your wellness.
