Hello Chelsea! My son used to have food aversions when he was a little boy, however, we never experienced the not wanting to eat food at all part. Over the years, he has been able to overcome some of it, he actually eats bananas which he used to dislike. He also eats some vegetables and fruits. His appetite increased with puberty, so he was willing to try new things. He starts by eating what he doesn’t like first and saves his favorite for last. I never gave up trying but I tried not to forced him either.
I hope you soon find a plan that works with your child since what might work for some kids probably won’t work for others.
