Try frozen berries. My son doesn't like the skin on berries but i'll peel it off of cherries. He's crazy for strawberries. He eats them frozen. They thaw very quickly and feel good since he's still teething. I buy the store brand organic berries.

sorry forget to say that you just throw all those ingredients in a blender and wizz it for a little bit.also just had another idea that you could make a habit of you frequently eating fruit in front of him or her without offering any to them maybe he/she might just reach for yours one day soon.

Smoothies work sooooo well! I tell them that im going to make "a special milkshake treat" and make out that its a sweet treat ;) at first you can keep the fruit content low so its more of a milk shake so they dont notice the taste of the fruit and then each time you make the smoothies gradually increase the amount of fruit.the recipes i use for smoothies for my 2 and a half yr old and my 14month old are.
1-2x banana
3x handfuls of frozen mixed berrys (major superfood)
2-3 cups of milk
1x fruit yogurt (if you want)
and any other fruit you can think of if you feel like getting creative, also honey can really sweeten it up and is good for them.

another easy one is

2x cups of apple juice
2x cups of frozen berries

other than this you could make your own oat bickys with cranberry and raisins etc.does he like fruit yogurt? you could trying buying the fruit yogurt that you get in tubes to making eating it alot more fun.hope this helps a bit (my 2yr old didnt like fruit either)

I started to have this problem, then i took my son shopping with me, i showed him the fruits, and asked him to pick out 3 and told him this would be his snack and or accompanying his lunch and he had to eat it or he didn't get a desert at dinner. he caught on pretty fast.
