Eating for a 15 month old

Our grandson is 15 months old and has a skin disorder, he needs extra calories. When he is fed he seems to lower is head and almost lock his jaw. We feel eating is a stressor for him. We try to entertain him when eating, read to him etc. Perhaps that is not helping either. Should he have a quiet, calm, no tv type of environment? Had this now been learned that he must have theatrics/distraction going on for him to eat? What steps can be taken to help out? I am sure he needs good eye contact from parents and engagement by them. Please help.
