Is it just me?I am starting to think they put something addictive for children in chicken nuggets! :-)
Has he ever tried vegetable nuggets? Or like Paige said try serving them with some healthy food. Or if he likes other dishes like spaghetti etc try serving that more often.Good luck

Oh gosh the diet is the toughest thing to deal with. I personally have been dealing with my girl who is 6 not wanting to eat certain veggies- What I would do is introduce more healthy foods with the nuggets. For instance, make 4 or 5 nuggets but put only 2 on the plate with some sliced apples or something healthy. Your child can have a nugget when he eats say 2 slices of his apple or another food you want to introduce. Slowly but surly you may find that he does not want the nuggets anymore.
He is five now so working with him on compromises is a good idea, and he will like that you involved him. Hope this helps!
