My 3-year old grandson will not eat solids

My grandson would be 4 in two months. However, he does not eat solids. My daughter (his mother) has been trying ever since he was 8 months old; he has tried to chew a few times and perhaps swallowed a few morsels. But that also very rarely. There was an episode of choking on a biscuit when he was one and a half year old. But I presume that the psychological effect of that episode, if any, would not last for so long.

To meet his nutrition needs his mother is giving him pureed food. Even otherwise he is a finicky eater and is only interested in playing. He is very active and has normal growth. Health is generally alright, except for frequent bouts of cold and cough.

We consulted a speech therapist one year back, as advised by his pediatrician. but the therapist did not find anything abnormal.

I would be glad for any suggestions on how to proceed further in the matter.

Thanks
