14 weeks old African Grey won't eat from dish but only from hand. Help!?

Hello people, i just joined this forum and this is my first post here. Hoping for positive and friendly responses.
So, i recently bought a 14 weeks old african grey that is fully grown now.
The problem with him is that he only eats from my hand, i am feeding him chickpeas, banana, apple, corn and sunflower seeds (as a treat). He doesnt even chew on the soft food, just few times chews the banana only if i put a bigger chunk in his mouth. He doesn't eat anything from the dishes. Although, he can eat seeds but he doesn't want to do it by himself. He wants me to feed him all the time. What should i do? I can not feed him all the time as i have other responsibilities as well. I am currently feeding him thrice a day. How do i make him eat by himself? Any advise will be appreciated. Thank you! 🙂
