I’m just curious on this one. What is it about dry, uncooked Ramen Noodles and kids on the Autism Spectrum?
If I let them, my boys would live on uncooked, crunchy Ramen Noodles. If we happen to be out, they love eating uncooked pasta, especially Emmett.
I used to think it was just my kids but after mentioning this before, I learned that many of you experience the same thing.
I was wondering what your thoughts were on this topic? Personally, my thought is that it’s a sensory thing. Maybe it’s that they get some desirable feedback from the crunching. Maybe they just like the taste.
To me, it would be like chewing on tree bark, not that I’ve actually tried that, but you get my point.
How many of your kids enjoy dry, crunchy Ramen Noodles? Do you limit their consumption or let them have at it? My boys would watch them all the time if I let them. They even like them as snacks.
