Autism spectrum disorders are characterized by difficulties with reciprocal social interactions and restricted patterns of behavior and interest; one of these characteristic behaviors is food selectivity. The objective of this study was to perform a systematic review of the literature published between 1970 and 2013 concerning this eating behavior. The articles identified were analyzed in terms of sample size, study design, and criteria for assessment and intervention, as well as the results, level of evidence and grade of recommendation. 

La recherche principale a été menée dans Medline, Cochrane Library, Scielo, ScienceDirect, et Embase). 

Il existe des preuves empiriques et un consensus scientifique global en faveur d'une association entre la sélectivité alimentaire et les troubles du spectre autistique.
