Yes he would be. This is the age to be so. Age 2-3 is called the terrible twos or terrific twos. He is entering into a phase where he will exercise use his independence and identity . He is learning to mind his own mind. So don't take it personally. When he hits out immediately hold his hands firmly and move him away. Make him sit quietly for ten min. Go down to his level and talk to him. Tell him about the expected behaviour. Wait till he calms to talk. Then tell him that he has to tell a sorry. Remain calm. Tell him also that you love him but you do not like his behaviour. At this stage they do go through phases - of not eating or eating a particular food. Do not force. When he is hungry give him something nutritious. It is only a temporary phase. Break his meals into smaller ones and feed him intermittently. Please do read this blog for some handy inputs. I hope these give you some ideas.
