you can get small baby friut in the baby issle at the store or even bye regular and offer it to him at every meal i would only do 1 fruit at a time for 1 week to make sure he is not allergic to it .but say mommy eats it daddy or grandma ymmm.i would start with may be watermelon ,or any of the melons .oh also i just rembered that they have baby fruit puffs ,i mnot sure if there real fruit tho you can try that as well or have you tried the v8 splash ?

my 21 month loves the v8 splash or and the fruitables by apple &eve i got those at toys R us !i know you said eat but that might be a start .

i get my daughter, who is almost 16 months, yogurt with the fruit on the bottom, and then mix it really well and get her to eat fruit that way.

cut bananas & put in some cheerios, strawberries dipped in sugar is still a fav for all my kids. have you tried canned fruit? my daughter (14 months) takes that better then the fresh stuff. mandarin oranges, pears and fruit cocktail she eats very well.

If I were you I wouldn't worry about it too much. My daughter is 18 months and I find she goes through phases. If I just lay off of it for a week normally she's interested in the food again the next week
