Hi moreno2011 and welcome to ehealth: He is young...Just about too young to understand what you are telling him...If it continues, the parents might want to talk to their Pediatrition about this problem...It's funny thinking back as when I was young I couldn't eat mashed potatoes...I would gag every time...Possibly he had something that scared him when he was younger...Take care...
