Need suggestions on how to encourage my son to have more fruits and veggies by himself

My 21 months old son refuses to touch fruits / veggies with a wet texture for instance apple or cucumber slices. How can I encourage him to eat. He happily eats fruits and veggies as long as they are blended into puree but doesnt eat them in solid form.

Sometimes kids are super sensitive to texture. As long as he is getting plenty of fruit and veggies and eats them happily, you are off to a great start. Maybe, if you are the one pureeing the food, start leaving little bits in it and see how he does with the texture. If he eats it, then make it chunkier and chunkier.
Does he eat any veggies or fruits in solid? If yes, can you give an example?
