Serve it: Tell him that is the only food provided. If he doesn't want it put it in the refigerator and serve it for the next meal. You are only responsible for providing the food.

Yes, but...: If you're trying to lose weight, try to keep the fruits to a minimum at night. Especially high sugar (high glycemic) fruits like bananas, apples, oranges, pineapples, etc. I generally recommend a cup of low sugar fruits like berries or melons at night or 1-2 cups of green veggies at night. Fructose in fruits is a major cause of weight gain and diabetes. ...Read more

Life may be shorter: Fruits & vegetables are our best source of a wide variety of important phytonutrients like flavonoids & carotenoids that have been proven to lower risk of heart disease & cancer.

Good foods: We all need protein in our diet, so dairy or lean meats and nuts (walnuts, almonds, cashews, brazil nuts, pecans) are good sources of this. Also, whole grains add nutrients and fiber to the diet, so these are good to add to diet as well. The key is variety - use things like color to get that variety. The more different colors on your plate, the better the diet!! ...Read more
Offer Variety: Kids often need to try a food several times before they tolerate it and even like it. Offering a variety of foods at meals allows them to experience seeing new food and then tasting new foods. Sometimes, they enjoy eating off an adult's plate. A different appearance can help them get used to the taste (in a smoothie or dipped in ranch for example). Be patient and persistent! ...Read more
Constipation: Constipation can lead to diverticular disease, hemorrhoids, and fissures. Fruits and vegetables also are packed with nutrients that fight cancer.

Can you eat raw frozen and raw fresh vegetables as long as you rinse them first? I don't see the issue since we don't cook our raw fruit.
OK for most BUT...:
Many people eat only raw vegetables (and raw food) for health benefits, but many nutrients in vegetables are better absorbed when cooked (esp. If boiled or steamed) while others are degraded by cooking.
Cruciferous veggies have chemicals that suppress thyroid function if eaten in excess that are deactivated by cooking. See

NO: The best vegan protein sources are nuts, seeds, beans & quinoa. It is very difficult to get all the protein you need solely from fruits & vegetables. But the clincher is essential fatty acids- I don't think there are any significant sources of omega 3 fats in fruits & veggies. If you aspire to a paleo diet it is not necessary to have beans or grains but you need nuts & seeds (hemp seeds esp. Good). ...Read more
