Try making it colourful so its actually atteact kids to eat. Or you can try some food art to make those food look pretty so it attract because they are fussy so many need more new creation

For me I will go goggles search healthy foods and benefits from fish & vegetables that important and nutrition for our body. And it work for my boy. try to cook different types of foods for your boy made him intereste enjoy his foods.

Maybe you can try making other dishes incorporating fishes or other types of meat or veggies. You can make patties with chopped veggies. He would not be able to taste the veggies that way but he will get the essential nutrients :-) Or you can make colourful bentos for me. Spinach pancake or home made fish fingers are favourites at our home. My kid does not even know that they are eating healthy :-)

Try giving more variety of food. Or try mashing his veg or fish into his food for him to intake easier.

This is very common in toddler (if he is) to be fussy and picky over food. They might be tired of eating the same thing and might find milk easier and faster to be filling. It happened to my toddler when she was 2 years old. She suddenly rejected her solid meals and only wanted to depend on fm. We were very panicky and even brought her to see PD. According to PD, we have to have a variety of different flavoured food to surprise or increase her taste buds. Also, we dont have to give her so much quantity of food. She will eat smaller quantity but balanced meal. Had to coax and nego before she ate her meals. Very tiring period for us but after that period, it was smooth sailing. No issues.

Try making it interesting for him to eat. Get him involved in the cooking process, give him the responsibility of picking out the fruits and vegetables that he would like to eat. Independence and ownership of the eating process can help.
