Picky eater - help my 12 year old is extremely picky

My son is 12 and has been a picky eater for the past 6 years. He loves anything that is a carb (cracker, chips, cookies, ) likes milk, cup of noodles, pancakes, fries, cereal, and tigers milk bars. He doesn't eat vegetables and the only fruits are bananas, apples, grapes. I am concerned because he is gaining weight even though he is extremely active. He was diagnosed with sensory processing disorder years ago- hoping he will outgrow it???? I am Worried

You have helped him in a way since you are the one buying and cooking the food. You shouldn't give in and just give him what he wants, you serve up a healthy meal and he has to eat it, no if's or but's.
It's been 6 years, he's not going to "outgrow" it unless you stop providing those foods for him.
