Thank you everyone for your ideas and advice! Whatever his problem has been, either it went away or he just got hungry finally because today Zachary has eaten!
He did perk up a little and eat his corn on the cob last night at dinner. He didn't touch the mashed potatoes. He also barely touched the yummy chocolate instant breakfast I made him. He doesn't know what he's missing!
However, this morning he happily ate all his waffles, some Cheerios, and some banana. He munched more cereal during church. He cleaned his plate at lunch! He even ate all the peaches, a fruit he often won't even touch when he's eating normally otherwise.
We're still leaning towards molars coming in as the source of his strange eating habits. I'll keep you posted if there are any other developments!
