Need advice for a picky eater...

My two year old son is the pickiest eater I know (not that I really know too many small children, but work with me here). He has a very weird list of foods that are acceptable to him for consumption, and it's constantly changing. I've tried several different tactics to get him to eat easily, or even just eat what we put in front of him, but getting him to just TRY what we make is a battle in itself. My husband and I like a wide variety of food, and we cook all the time, so he's getting plenty of varieties to try, but he staunchly refuses. On top of that, his list of favorite things changes to the point where he won't even eat something he loved and demanded the week before (PB&J, grilled cheese, potatoes, etc.). Does anyone have any tactics, advice, recipes, or anything that I can use? I know this is just a phase (he was a good eater as a baby), but it's frustrating.

Oh here are some recipes my little girl ate and eats every time preschool cooks for her 1: beef Che mien
Tray of mince , 1 x pk beef 2 minute noodles , garlic & jar of pasta sauce
