Good Fats for a 14-month-old

Dear Nutritionist,
Hi. My 14-month-old son, who has a dairy allergy, is a very picky eater. I know fats are good for babies so I've been trying to get him to eat veggies cooked in olive oil, peanut butter, etc. But he hates veggies, squishes his PBJs and loathes avocado. He thrives on crackers and other dry foods (has some texture issues as well). How can I get fats into him?
