Don't give into his pickiness. If you do, it'll only get worse from here. It can take a baby trying something a cpl dozen times before they truly decide if they like it. Feed him whatever you're eating...no need to make it hard on yourself.

Offer what ever you are eating for those meals.  Have him try 3 bites of whatever it is and then give him a healthy alternative you know he will eat.  It will take 7-12 tiimes of them trying it to get used to that particular taste.

There are a zillion ways to make eggs...he's gotta have a favorite. Mine loves them sunny side up. He thinks the yolk is honey. He says, "mommy I want eggs with the honey in the middle."

 Don't give in to his pickiness. I know from experience how bad this can end up being. He will not starve. It is your job to provide food for him. It's his job to decide if he wants it or not. Don't plead and beg. Don't make any comment at all. He'll eat when he's hungry.

Great advice luvemboth. :) 

@ newmommy >>  If you start fixing him something different from what everyone else is eating, then he will expect it to happen each and every time, all the time. Babies take several tries of any particular food before they decide that they actually like something.

When my twins turned a year and I was able to start really giving them regular table foods,they were really picky.I never gave in.I kept offering what we were eating....now I know what they will eat,normally whatever is we are eating,not as much though.I sometimes break there meals up however just in case they would get hungry later.

my go to snack is steamed carrots. I have not met a kid that didn't like them. I went shopping with a friend and our kids were ready for a snack. the other mom had marshmellows and I had carrots. both kids ate the carrots.

I don't worry about picky eating. a child will eat when he/she is hungry. if the child doesn't eat lunch, put the plate in the fridge and pull it out when he/she wants to eat later.

Definitely serve him what you are eating. He's a person just on a smaller scale. You still want to be mindful of any foods that may cause a reaction i.e. honey,peanut butter. Asking your pediatrician what to avoid is another option. Before you know it your little guy will be eating you out of house and home!!
