Do you think he would be interested in cooking (assembling) for himself? It might reduce the "ick" factor if he has some control over what goes into the meal (for which you provide the ingredients, of course--limiting the fatty/junky stuff like cheese.)

I know when I was a kid, I didn't want to eat most vegetables. Then, my family grew some things like zucchini and beans, and I started participating in gardening. Somehow, seeing the veggies grow made them more palatable. Of course, I didn't want to eat most canned veggies after having them fresh. Good luck!

Still not too keen on canned peas
