I can’t remember when it dawned on me that my son is a HSP, but that understanding was a gift. This knowledge opened a line of communication between us and acceptance from me. When it comes to feeding, his HSP character trait is a big factor in our success. To an average observer, he would probably appear picky. But he’s not. He loves lamb Epic bars and eats peppers like candy. He loves a wide variety of textures and flavor but has a very low tolerance for new foods. The difference between picky and sensitive is nuanced, but matters when developing a strategy for successful feedings.
