I am so sorry you are going through this. I have a son who refuses to eat most anything also. Though he is Autistic with sensory issues though.

These are what my DR tolld me to do with him.Feed him WHAT he will eat, WHEN he will eat, his body will gather the nutrients it needs. Try to include Ensure or Pediasure in his diet, if he likes smoothies, you can mix them up with ice in a blender and there you go, flavored nutrients.

 Take him to his DR, and make sure it is not something underlying, that you can not see.

I am here if you need to talk to anyone!

when my dd was 2 she refuse to eat, I mean she would get so mad and make her self puke if i made her eat. I also said i was giving up on her lol. so what my mom did was  every morning she would cut up apples  oranges and carrots and wash some grapes , and leave on a bowl on the table ,  she would make her a sandwich and cut it up in little shapes and leave on the table also , and it took a few days but all of the sudden you would see her run to the table and  grab something to eat.
