i have always found the best way to get children eating is by getting them involved in making the food - there are some wonderfull cook books out now with simple resipies that children can help with or even if it's as little as puting the filling in their own sandwich or topping on the pizza base. aswell always make sure you are sitting at the table eating with them that way they learn good eating habits and it's a great time to chat. also a bit of fun never hurt anyone a tea party with friends or toys - you'll be amazed at how much a child will eat if you serve it a little bit at a time on a play plate.

My daughter just turned 2 last month and she's pretty picky too. I've noticed that she will eat anything that I am eating tho... and I mean it has to be off of my fork and out of my bowl. After a few bites of mine then she usually will let me pour some into her bowl and she'll eat it. Try that. Oh and if your son likes cheese... then by all means cover EVERYTHING in it! Lol!
