Does he eat fruit? Too much fruit is not good since it has so much sugar, but many of the nutrients in vegetables are also in fruits... so if he'll eat fruit I wouldn't worry.

Many kids do go through a 'picky' phase and it's perfectly normal. Keep offering him a variety of veggies w/ his meals alongside the other foods. If he wants seconds of anything (the foods he likes) you can tell him he can have seconds after tasting a bite of the veggies. I wouldn't 'push' him to eat them, but just a tiny bite to taste.

Some kids will eat raw veggies w/ a dip or cooked veggies covered in melted cheese that they wouldn't normally eat otherwise.
