I also use a sensory integration approach with this type of situation. Let all of the senses learn to tolerate this texture. Never force the food on the child. Let the child pick up the spoon and bring the food to his lips, or let him use his hand, even better! Also, try games and dares with the texture.
There are many good books on this subject, look at the offerings on Amazon. I like the book, "Just Take a Bite."
