Your son is old enough now to start trying food...so to help him try it out you should start giving him mlukheyyeh with the rice, most of the kids love it with rice. After that try peas with carrots mentioning that they are green balls to help him hit more goals in his PE ... football games.. Drinking 3 cups of milk a day would decrease the amount of food he needs or asks for, so basically 2 cups as a start are enough and make him eat real food. No snacks or candies are allowed if he didn't finish his meal, so this way he has to finish it and gradually stsrt introducing new food items to him.
