Don't leave it. He needs to know if he does not eat it that it will go away. Eventually he will become hungry and want to eat. Make sure he gets fluids but it should not take long for him to want something to eat. No treats or snacks either. Try telling him if he eats his dinner you will give him something special for a snack. It took a few times of sending my grandson to bed to get him to eat. I know it is frustrating but kids also need to know they are NOT IN CONTROL you are. Try for a few days see how it goes.

Our grandson would not eat anything but pizza and hot dogs when we got him. He would gag at everything else. He was 2 when I got him. I sent him to bed a few times when he started gagging at other foods. He got to where he would try small things and now he will eat anything I put in front of him. Kids will manipulate you if you let them. Just put out what you are eating and if he will not eat tell him this is dinner if you don't want dinner to get down from the table. You never said how old you child was? Tell him you don't have and Yogets and fruit pot and he will have to chose something else and give him some choices of things you want him to have. Do it several times. He will eventually chose something else.
