My son is 18 and lives on chicken nuggets, french fries and coke. All his life, he has had a difficult time with trying different foods. I don't know how to help him get past this problem .

It seems like he is content with the way he eats and you have more of the problem with it. Yes, I certainly understand that you desire to have him eat in a more healthy way so that he stays healthy but at 18 years of age, and after many years of trying, I am not sure things will change until he desires them to. Does he have anxiety or depression that causes him to be restricted in his life and with his foods?
