I have the same problem and blame it entirely on nursery, like someone else has mentioned above. Nursery give 'proper' puddings like ice creams, custard with cakes etc and before LO started nursery I used to only give her fruits and yogurts. I dont even think she has ever had a yogurt at nursery; snacks also usually consist of raisins too
Omar doesn't eat fruits other than a banana in the morning & 1/2 apple during the day. He loves fruit smoothies. I prepare some & I freeze it. He drinks some in the morning or I mix it with some plain yoghurt or baby cereals. He loves his veggies in stews. He gets his 3-5 a day, this is why I don't worry about his fruits intake.
The smoothie have a good variety of fruits (avocado, strawberries, mango, peach, apple, pear, kiwi, fresh OJ & dates molasses)
We have the veg problem except for broccoli and carrots. He used to eat all veg, but since he can communicate better with us, he refuses more, demands things he wants(!) like blueberries, points to the fridge a lot. I think a lot is a control thing, I just keep offering and hope the phase passes. Like others have said try those pre packed fruit packs to see if he likes anything in it.
Three weeks ago, he was eating sooooo many cherry tomatoes I cold hardly keep up, now he won't touch them and gets upset if I put one on the plate!!!
I have this issue with veg. She used to be so good, now its just sweetcorn, peas and squash she's a fruitbat though and would eat her weight in raspberry if I let her.
My LO used to eat all the summer veg and it has quite a bitter taste (asparagus, courgette, sugar snap, broccoli, aubergine etc.) since she tated winter food with all its sweet carbs like parsnip, carrot, swede etc she wont eat the bitter greens - such a shame as we are approaching summer again.
