Autism Question

How do you get your child to try different foods?

My son is 7 years old. He only eats certain. He simply refuses to eat foods that we eat. Right now dinner consists of pizza or chicken nugget and french fries. He loves some fruits so we give him as much as he would eat but definitely no veggies and the typical dinner foods. Any suggestions?
