Thanks for your query.
Young children are very choosy in eating,you have to be very patient with him.
Give him plenty of fluids,salads,fruit. Feed him from family pot.
Try to apply two spoon method that is one spoon to yourself and one spoon to him.
Let him feed himself.
All family members should sit and eat together .
Wishing your children good health.
God bless.
