Is there a good solid reason for him not wanting to eat? that is what we need to find out first. Does he not have an appetite? Is he still underweight now? I have a 15 year old daughter and there for a while she would not eat either. she kept watching her weight, she said. I told her that she has to eat or she will be sick for not doing so. She said that all of the girls in school were thin. My daughter is not heavy at all but she is not slender like some of the other girls in school either. I just sat down with her and talked to her about why she didn't want to eat and we worked through it that way. I told her she does not have to eat a whole meal but she has to eat something throughout the day. She doesn't like alot of what I fix to eat. she is very picky about that. she wants to mainly eat junk food and i told her that is not good for her either. I would just sit down and talk to your son first about the reaosn why he does not want to eat a good meal first and go from there.
