My son is 4yr, he started creche 2 days ago. he does not eat lunch at creche because they are offering new food to him, he is a picky eater but I was hoping when he see other kids his age eat he will also eat. I' m worried sick about him, the teacher called me and said I must do something about it. I don' t how to do this becaue whne I cook new things at home he does not eat. is it wise to force food down his throat? because I think if he can taste ones he will no that it' s nice and eat. I don' t know what to do

Do not try to force your son to eat. Take all pressure off him at mealtimes.He must eat all his meals with the family. Simply put his food in front of him and let him get on with eating. Do not watch him and don't say a word if he leaves any food on the plate.He will eat what he wants, needs and likes. Eventually he will start eating well.
