let him look at some recipes here in the group  and pick out some he may like to try .. Some men can be the pickyest ones.

I am half tempted to tell he has to try at least four bites before he can say he don't like it

Let him call the cops ... what are they going to do?

My 80's uncle comes for a 2 wk visit. One suitcase filled with Musketeers candy bars and a backpack with one change of underwear and his free coffee punch card. Reason for not eating with us? He didn't have room to pack his dentures :)

I would take the advice of one of the other ladies and let him pick a couple of meals. Then I would make extra for left overs on the days that he doesn't want what I'm making. I would also ask him if there are any particular snacks or breakfasts he would like before I went shopping. That way you have something to offer him that he chose so he will not be able to refuse it and the stress of what he will eat is off you.

Isn't he ill?  Maybe foods don't taste the same to him as they do to you...my grandmother was the same way for years before she passed away.  She'd eat toast, oatmeal, soup, crackers and cheese.  She couldn't stand to eat anything else.

If he likes spaghetti, then give him spaghetti.  It's easy enough to cook up a batch and feed him from it for a few days.  If he eats fruit, then give him fruit to give him the vitamins he needs.  Eggs are pretty good and are cheap and can be cooked in a few different ways.  Those are all foods that require little to no cooking, and you can easily make meals for your family while he eats his spaghetti and fruit and eggs.

That was my first thought too. If you're offering meals and he's refusing he, not you, is to blame if he's hungry.

I agree.
