Freddie, eight months, feeding problems

I am so worried about my son's eating. He is eight and a half months old. He was eating four teaspoons of Ready Brek or 3/4 Weetabix with two cubes fruit puree and whole milk, six cubes of either chicken casserole, lentil savory or lamb hotpot with a 90g yoghurt, six cubes of leek and potato or corn chowder or root medley followed by three cubes sweet potato with one cube pear and one cube apple. He was also having three breast-feeds a day and was always a good sleeper. I have followed Contented Baby and Contented Weaning from day one.

I noticed similarities between him and one of the case studies (Daniel) as he was fussy over everything after having a sickness bug two weeks ago and it was getting worse and worse. So I started following the suggestions given for Daniel yesterday and stopped giving him breakfast, but unlike the case study, he didn't really want lunch (chicken casserole mashed) at 11:00am although he seemed really hungry. I tried again at 11:30 and he ate nearly everything, so I didn't give him anything else as he hadn't quite finished it. He would normally have a yoghurt. I'm now on the second day and trying to feed him lunch. He didn't get hungry until 11:50, he's eaten a few spoons of lentil savory (mashed consistency) and then didn't want any more (I would have normally mixed his food with yoghurt at this point in the past which may have added to problems). I think we've got the following issues: protein, wanting to feed himself, a sweet tooth and not liking mashed food. I need help urgently please.
