In brief: Food intolerance
Food intolerance has to be high on the list, however, an obstruction needs to be ruled out if he has true projectile vomiting.
If this is not a surgical problem, then an evaluation for the offending food or foods will make a significant difference and lead to resolution of his symptoms.

In brief: Depends on health
If he is healthy and a typically feisty and independent toddler, first step is to ensure he has soft regular bowel movements.
Look into his diet to discern whether there is any relationship with certain foods/beverage. Is he picky? Does he eat without chewing? Could there be a food allergy? Any cough or choking with vomiting? No stomach ache/wt. Loss/change in activity. He should see his dr.
