My daughter Lacey is 20 months old and is very picky i gave up in the end and made her little picknics for lunch finger foods like little sausages,ham,cucumber bread stick's ...to name a few i always give the her option of a yougart and she loves feeding herself, for her evening meal she has things she can eat witn her hands, spagetti her fav if not a little messy but i just put her straight in the bath and into her jammies try letting him loose with a spoon and see how he gets on,good luck x

Make a list of what he will eat then you can see what you've got to work with. Also it can take up to 30 attempts for a child to decide they like the food, so don't give up whatever you do, keep plugging away at it. My youngest is a picky eater, for 6 months all she'd eat was baked beans!! Now she'll eat almost anything solong as it's home coked and not junk - success!! Oh, and Wotsits... Lol
