My children don't get an option on what they eat.

I cook 1 meal (child friendly of course) and if they don't eat it they go hungry.

You have to stand your ground without turning it into a battle. Have dinner together as a family and if he hasn't eaten within a reasonable time take it away and leave the table. If he gets hungry later then he can have what you had served earlier. Make sure you don't keep telling him to eat, ignore him. Carry on with the conversation as if he's not there if he is having a tantrum. Kids react to attention (good or bad) so if he's not getting any he may surprise you and just eat.

My Husbands nephew is 14 and that's all he eats!!!!
