My DS can't be bothered with food. He likes candy and goodies, but doesn't really ask for them.
When it comes to meals, he could easily skip eating and not notice. He likes fresh fruits, and vegetables and a few other things like plain pasta, waffles, oatmeal and an occasional PB&J sandwich.
He really won't eat anything else - no pizza, no mac & cheese, no meat, etc.
I don't know what to do to get him to eat more "regularly". Some people have suggested I present him with the dinner option and if he doesn't like it, he goes to be hungry and he'll eat when he is hungry. But I really think he'll hold out til he gets something he likes. And I feel bad forcing him because he really prefers healthier food.
The problem is when we go out to eat, most places do not have fresh fruit options on their menu. And for example, tonight for Christmas Eve - he's not going to like anything that my MIL will have there (appetizers, crabmeat, mac&cheese, etc).
I welcome any advice, thank you :)
