Please please please don't let someone bully your child into doing something he is not comfortable with, it sets a bad precident and it makes him feel bad.
Imo a life of pancakes, cerial, ice cream, and crackers is way better than a life of being conditioned that you are required to do things you do not like just because someone bigger than you told you that you have to do it.
Even worse, it sounds like one therapist is doing this in a way he is comfortable with and the other is torturing him with food in hopes that he will somehow magically like food. I would stick with the good therapist, and register a complaint with the bad one.
As an adult with MANY sensory based food avoidances, I can tell you that I live a full life, and my life does not include pudding, mayonase, beans, curry, raw onions, mushrooms, whip cream, sour cream, etc etc. And if someone tried to force me hand over hand to eat one of those things I would 1) try to leave, 2) verbally protest, 3) sue them, 4) punch him in his pudding eating face.

I would be very uncomfortable too. A battle of wills with a toddler is never a good idea and a therapist who engages in one is not a good therapist!
