Is it possible he's allergic to fruits and veggies? When my son was younger, I thought he was just being picky, too. I could get him to eat a few things but he refused most fruits and veggies. After a fairly intense reaction to watermelon, we had him tested and found he was allergic to it. At the time, we hadn't put two and two together so we didn't ask for further testing for other foods but once he grew older, he was able to express the fact that his throat and tongue itched and tingled when he ate most fruit and veggies. Given the fact that he tested positive to watermelon, we're assuming he's allergic to most fruits and veggies because the symptoms are the same as when he ate watermelon.

Also, I've been hearing about something called "supertasters" lately. Here's a link you might find interesting:
