Fussy eater

My 2 yrs old son is super fussy when it comes to eating food. M tired trying various options but all in vain. He does eat fruits juice, milk products and breads but when it comes to eating proper meal like rice, dal or chapati he just doesn't eat it. Off late he is not eating his dinner at all. He drinks milk in evening and doesn't eats his dinner. His growth seems to fine in terms of his height n weight as per his doctor but m still worried about his fussy eating habit.. Please help and suggest me some way I can reduce his fussiness and make his eat his food.
