hi Shalini Vasanth! I understand your concerns! this is going to be lil difficult to replace computer but not impossible. u could bring picture books and narrate a story with actions and sounds . the more the drama the better it gets . also actively participate in making castles with blocks or finding 'a' s in a page and whosoever wins gets a reward or a smiley. give immediate praise and reward to keep him hooked on .look for other interesting and innovative ways to keep him occupied. singing and dancing are also tried and tested methods by parents including me. u need to talk to him from his first to last bite. I am sure in no time he will wait for meal time and enjoy his Mom's company and not gadgets.
