According to a medical website, children with Asperger's syndrome have a limited range of interest which could be making your child prefer that kind of a meal. Children with this syndrome can be obsessed with certain things and this could be contributing to his feeding habits. This is according to; http://www.webmd.com/brain/autism/mental-health-aspergers-syndrome. You can also go and see a doctor to get more information on what could be causing the eating disorder and to get a solution.
Some indeed do. I happen to have two with with Aspergers. Only one of my two is very sensitive to certain foods. Sometimes as they become older it gets better. My oldest one can now tolerate certain textures and the feel of certain foods. Key is to introduce "the bad stuff" slowly with foods they really like. In our case, we gave surprises for trying the different foods. This has been a very slow, gradual process though. Good luck!
