What does his Pediatrician

What does his Pediatrician say? That would be the first step. Children as a rule go through many odd eating phases, and it's generally said that they will eventually eat what they need, but that is not always the case.
I am curious as to why this has not been addressed before now? Is he underweight? I suggest that you talk to his pediatrician, and consider consulting with a nutritionist (you, along with your son), to discuss options that will ensure that your son gets the proper nutrients in the proper amounts. It may also help to always make a variety of foods available so that if given the chance, your son may try some new things on his own. Perhaps you have tried this. Good luck with his doctor. I hope all goes well!
