This does not make you a failure. Toddlers are often very stubborn and picky eaters. Talk to the doctor about giving him vitamins. There are liquid vitamins that you can put in apple juice or milk with iron. He'll be fine. Just keep offering him a variety of foods and make sure he sees you eating them as well. Eventually, he'll eat lots of different things.
