How long has it really been since he's been on the fruit binge?  If its only been a few days, or even a few weeks, you are fine :).  Just keep offering other foods for him to eat.

Kids do thsi from time to time...they think its because he's catching up on some vitamins and minerals...but who knows LOL

Too much fruit isn't bad but too long without proteins and such can be not as good.  If it goes on for too long I would restrict the fruit a bit to get her to eat a peanut butter sandwich and some cheese.

While eating fruit is great, a child definately needs protein and other nutrients. I would stop offering the fruit unless she eats other foods.
