try using the foods he likes but in a different way like use his breafast sausages in a caserole with tomatoes and veg or make an omlet with the egg and put different things in it. a pasta sauce with either sausage or bacon is very tasty and it gets him used to different flavours along with the familiar.

Mix what you want him to eat with what he will eat. Little at first, though, then progress to more and more.

My daughter was the same way. Try dipping sauce like ketchup, ranch, or anything they might like. Some kids like to mix weird things together, but if it gets them eating then why not. My daughter loves broccoli with ranch.

My daughter is almost three and her meals are repetitive as well...I always offer new food even if she says no i offer...i do give her V8 fusion drinks for the full serving of veggies and fruits and i give her calcium gummies because she is sensitive to lactose... i find that with time new food will spark her interest, especially when she sees other kids eating it...be patient and always offer with time your son will become more interested in different foods...as long as his weight isnt dropping then you shouldnt worry to much :)
