We had a couple of families with very specific needs/requests.
*** My daughter has Aspergers Syndrome, Tourette's Syndrome, ADHD, Sensory Processing disorder in which the last diagnosis causes her to not eat if it is something that does not "look" pleasant. (Certain textures, consistencies, colors) which cause her be vitamin D deficient amongst other digestive problems.(chronic constipation) When she doesn't have enough to eat I like to have handy protein drinks.(pediasure, ensure, generic brands) I have not been able to get any due to having to stock up on other stuff. If possible chocolate is the preferable flavor for her. She might drink strawberry. Also if possible powdered benefiber. Generic is fine also. She cannot swallow pills yet so I cannot give her stool softeners. Thank you & bless you.
