I went through the same thing with my son, I finally took him to see his pediatrician and she sat him down and explained to him the importance of good nutrition and that even though he is not hungry and she understands that, he still needs to eat a certain amount of food each day to stay healthy and maintain a proper growth schedule. My son listened and has really turned around we only put a specific amount of food in his lunch for school, and at home I judge how much he gets.
