It's pretty common for babies and toddlers to start rejecting foods they once loved. You should try the food again in a few weeks. Stick to what he wants to eat and try other things when he's ready. Like the above mom said it could be due to teething or illness and you'll just have to wait it out. I'm assuming he still drinks formula so he may want that more than food to fill him up.

Try giving him soft chunks of solid food--he might be more interested in self-feeding. Or he could be teething, or getting sick. Both can affect a child's appetite.
