I love your show and have learned so much. Overall this episode was pretty good, but it is obvious he doesn’t have a neurodivergent child or close experience with one. His picky eater advice was nothing different than what is taught in medicinal school. Rachel and Jessica tried to bring up the kids with sensory issues who will only eat five food and he still went back to how kids won’t starve themselves. That part was super frustrating and I am sure many parents were disappointed by his response
