Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Does your child not like the certain food. Is he drinking water, juice etc. If the child is weak and not feeding it could be dangerous and needs immediate Doctor's advice. Otherwise you may try feeding him small bits of the food he likes. Gradually upgrade to the food he less prefers. He needs plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. High protein diet like cereals, pulses, chicken, lean meat, eggs are very helpful in normal growth. He needs good hydration with water and fresh fruit juice. If he is not feeding at all do show him to his Doctor to rule out any pathological causes.

Thanks for query,
It seems that your son might have worm infestation causing anemia and resulting in loss of appetite.
Go for stool and blood test for hemoglobin.
Give the food he likes the most.
Give fresh fruit juices and green veggies soup.
Give branded Iron syrup.
Ok and bye.
