Getting DS to like vegetables again

All my DC have been different in terms of food, fussiness etc. But mostly it's gone alright and I've stuck to the 'if you have tried it and really don't like it then I won't make it again but there's nothing else tonight' etc and that's been pretty good. They aren't perfect eaters but not really any sugar, plenty of veg and a good amount of variety.

DS however has suddenly changed. He's 5 and has decided he only likes cucumber peas sweetcorn and broccoli (occasionally cherry tomatoes). And is generally being so funny about all sorts of foods. (There's a fleck of green on my pasta etc).

What do i do to get him back to eating relatively normally!?!?

Nothing! I would just continue as you are and serving up veg he previously ate. Maybe some times in a different form, so if he previously ate carrot, give him some grated carrot along side his usual dinner. Sometimes give things the same as you always did. Try not to make a big thing of it just stick to your usual rules.
Another tip may be to present previous likes when he's around mates particularly if they are good eaters.
I reacon he'll revert sooner or later.

Could you get him involved in buying and cooking them? E.g. get him to pick the carrots, wash them, chop them (with your help) cook them and serve them to you/his siblings?
