My previous eat everything just 2 year old now declared anything not pasta, biscuits or yogurt to be yuk. He refuses to eat and seems to prefer going hungry. I am trying not to give in when he won't eat but it is difficult. How do I deal with this?

Take the emotion out of it and don't discuss. When he says 'yuk' just say, mildly, 'we'll that is it- take it or leave it'. If he doesn't eat it remove without comment. Don't serve alternatives or snacks. He won't starve. If he says he is hungry just say, in a bored tone, 'I expect you are, you didn't eat your dinner'.
As babies they tend to eat anything - they then discover they have choice and useful,words like 'no'.
