Keep offering new things. Just put them on his plate. You'll probably be throwing it away a lot, but usually, kids will try it if they see it ehough. Eventually, it doesn't seem as "weird" to them anymore. Also, what i did when DD was about that age, i would sit & eat something by myself a little before it's time for her to eat. She would be hungry & curious what i was eating & a lot of the times, she would ask if she could try it, or say "what is that, is it yummy?"
If you keep putting say "grapes" or "green beans" on his dinner plate, he will eventually try it. Also, in my house...we eat our veggies FIRST. DD can have her pizza, chicken nuggets, fries..whatever..AFTER she eats her veggies. This way, she eats all her veggies. I've been doing this since she was very young though, so she is used to it.
