Feed him off of your plate..only offer milk in Am and pm thru the day leave out water or juice mostly water tho also buy some pediasure taste great and gives. Nutrients and by vitamins . Those pediasure fill them up ...if you really can't get him off of milk delute the milk with water Add more water slowly until he doesn't want it all the time won't taste as good -am milk give its full taste and pm but during night dilute it with water

You HAVE to break him of that habit...thats what it is! In the morning give him a good breakfasr even if its baby cereal mixed with milk and fruit, toast...whatever....Need to get him to eat not drink! He will get hungry enough that he will start eating but at 2 he thinks he has the control you have to take control back and not give in!
