Offer him his meals, and he'll eat when he's hungry. He's one, so IDK if he is nursing, or if you still give formula (you didn't specify so for all I know he could be just 12 mos old, and if that's the case, it's not unheard of to still be having a little formula), but if he IS either nursing or taking some formula, that's a help, if he drinks a lot of milk you may want to cut back a little bit, so that he doesn't fill up on milk, and may eat more. He won't starve himself though. Toddlers tend to exist on air and the occasional chicken nugget LOL. Go with the flow, and you will likely notice his eating habits changing often through the next year. He is also probably learning that he has some control, and this is a common way for toddlers to exercise that. And we thought infancy and infant feeding was confusing...
