More ideas for you. This is what I did with Brandon when he was at the Feeding Clinic. Start working on a list of foods he likes and dislikes. Like I posted early try things that are similar or add things to the foods he already likes. Also you need to introduce a food about fourteen times before they can decide if they like it or not. So just have him take a bite. If he doesn't like it he doesn't have to eat it. I think you are doing the right thing by giving him what he likes. I don't think you can make a child like something. What you can do is have him try things several times. I think you are doing a lot of the right things.

Jen had some good advice too. You can add nutrients to the foods he already likes.
