Try and eat together every night and give him the same foods as you. Do not tell him to eat his dinner just ignore his whinges and talk about anything but food. If he does eat make no comment until the end of the meal. If he eats nothing offer him the food again in half an hour. If he does not eat it then offer him nothing else. A child will not starve it'self. so don't worry just make food not an issue.

How old is your son? Our doctor gave us a great idea for our son he has to take one bite for every year he is old before he can refuse a food. He's 4 so he has to have 4 bites. His cousins who are a year older then him have to take 3 no thank you bites before not eating anymore.
