Hi Cheryl,
Your son has a number of co-existing conditions, so this might not just be a simple case of food refusal. I don't want to speculate, but strongly suggest that if you haven't already done so, approach your pediatrician and discuss a referral to a dietician who hopefully specialized in children.
Regards,
Graham
