What Jodi said,
and he might not be feeling well, he might be constipated or have a stomach ache, he might be stressed too. Ask him how hes feeling, if you haven't already. See if their might be an underlying issue, if he doesnt say anything and keeps it up ,then you might have to get him checked out to make sure everything is ok. Sudden appetite changes could mean a problem, dont get in a panic though, more than likely hes just distracted.

Are you sitting down and having mealtime with him? He may be being distracted, especially at this age. I always found that if we ALL sat down for breakfast or dinner, my kids were more likely to eat properly.
