Raising a Picky Eater

Our 3 1/2 year old son, Matthew, is a very picky eater. He literally only eats Yogurt, goldfish crackers, a few different variety of cookies, milk and juice, and that's it! He used to eat all kinds of food. Then I got pregnant with our daughter and he stopped. I don't know why? We didn't do anything different. We kept feeding him what we were eating.

I don't know how to introduce new foods to him, or how to get him to take a bit of them? Bribing him might work, but I doubt it, he is very strong willed and stubborn. I read an article HERE on Single Dad Life that says not to bribe him. But Matthew won't put anything in his mouth that he doesn't like, not even one bite.

If anyone has any advice, please let me know, I would really like some suggestions on this. It has been suggested that Matthew might be Autistic or have Aspergers, but he hasn't been diagnosed, yet.

I just don't know what to do or what to try, or how to do it? Any advice would be helpful. Thank you.
