Sometimes making the food look really good helps. Or trying alot of colours. My stepson never used to like eating alot of fruits or eating sandwiches. What we did was eat the same things he was eating together so he could see that we liked it too. Or giving alot of variety. Maybe get him to help make his own lunch, because usually when kids help out they feel good about what they did and if they feel good about it then they might feel good about eating it too. Or if he's really stubborn, which my stepson was at one point, have him sit there until he at least tries it or something and then just keep encouraging more. Also what kinda fruit have you tried? My stepson LOVES fruit now and the sandwiches he eats all the time, i just cut it in half from the corners, he used to like it cut into fours, but now he likes the halves. And too until he starts eating more maybe put him on some sort of Vitamin so he's getting what he needs.
