My 4 year old goes through stretches of not liking meat, when she does that we make sure we have something for her to eat in place of meat. Our kids aren't picky eaters but they go through spurts of not wanting to eat, they have never turned down fruit or frozen peas so we make sure to have those on hand.
I don't believe in forcing kids to eat what they don't like, I do believe in making them taste it before saying they don't like it. Try different spices or marinates with the meat, he might like that. Try making things different, if they don't like broccoli add melted cheese. When making meals make sure you always have one or two things you know they will like.
My niece went through spurts of only wanting mashed potatoes, then it was something else....she also wouldn't eat things for her mom but would for me.
