7 Year old, problem eater just diagnosed with Celiacs

(Denver, CO)

My son is an extremely picky eater. He does not eat any meat, fish, fruits or vegetables. His typically diet includes breads, cheese, pizza, bagel and cream cheese, snacks like popcorn, gold fish, wheat thins, fruit snacks. He was just diagnosed with Celiacs so we will be going gluten-free in the next week after the final testing is completed, he has has short statue. Academically, physically, and socially he is a thriving 1st grader.

I am sure we will find many gluten-free options to replace his current food. But I am most worried about getting him to eat meat, fruit & vegetables - on their own boy secretly hidden...

I feel like a need outside help like therapy. Does anyone have any suggestions.
