I would just only offer table foods. At first he may not eat much or anything at all but once he gets hungry enough and realizes that table food is all he is getting he will eat. Try easy things...scrambled eggs, pancakes, pastas, toast, grilled cheese....things that he can pick up easily and chew easily.

well, I never fed my kids jarred foods...when they started being interested in foods, I pureed what we were eating, and they ate it as well. As they got older, they transitioned to the same foods in solid form.

Try only feeding what you are eating. Kids like to mimic their parents.

And you can find other sources of protein that are not meats...do a search on non-meat forms of protein.

One of my good friend's daughter went through this similar situation and I went through something similar with my daughter. She would not eat meat until she was about 2-3 years old. I would not force her to eat meat but gave her tge foods she did enjoy and kept introducing her to meat along the way. Eventually, she began eating it. Even in my friend's situation, his mom gave him what he liked and kept introducing along the way until he came around. I believe it's all about patience and timing.
