Hi, my niece was Dx'd with ODD last year.... It can be hard, I see her dad struggle-- my heart goes out to you.
Treat the food thing like you would a toddler who goes through the whole I don't want eat stage.... Leave the food you want them to eat accessible, when he is hungry he will eat. Making sure you don't give in when those times come, will train him that mom says I have eat this, eventually he will, or he will go hungry. Head strong childreen can be tamed without breaking their spirit, it's hard on parents but stick to it.... Teach him the right way to eat, it won't be fun but in the long run it will be worth it.
Keep encouraging him to get and stay involved. Maybe take a one on one field trip to a super market (we have Wegmans) the head of department can usually take some time and have taste testings and give recipes.
My niece really enjoys baking, when she has had a good week my brother lets her bake a cake or brownies and then they go visit someone, that way he isn't stuck eating the sweets, and she doesn't get an over load.
Good luck, hope that helped a little!
