Toddlers are fussy eaters, it's well known. Plus he's at an age where he wants to explore everything around him and sometimes, food takes a backseat. Give him a variety of food, try make it colorful, interactive. Finger foods are great as he can eat while at play. Include him when you sit down to have a meal, don't feed him separately. He may pick at his food in the beginning, but in time he'll learn by seeing you. Summer heat also causes loss in appetite. Try including fresh fruits, juices and soups in his diet. Lastly, Toddlers will test your patience no matter what. Hence u gotta improvise as you go Hope I could be of some help
