Hope you are doing well. Children these days become assertive and smart pretty soon. I am sure he might have some favorite foods or may be a favorite cartoon which he watches and eats his meals. Try giving him a small portion at one time. Try sitting with him for meals. Give him varieties of foods and include fresh fruits and veggies in his diet. Try telling him stories while feeding him meals. Try eating along with him so that he sees and eats it. Make his food presentable and avoid force feeding. Avoid gadgets or television during his eating time. Hope this helps :)
