Hi and welcome to Healingwell :) You can post this question over on our great Crohn's board. Usually people with an IBD such as Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis avoid raw fruits or vegetables because of the fiber content. People that have an IBD have a hard time digesting the fiber which causes diarreah instead of what fiber was intended to do. A good multivitamin is essential if he is unable to tolerate raw fruits and veggies. Sometimes too cooking them until their mush will be easier on him as well.
Definately take a peek over at our Crohn's fourm and I'm sure you will find a wealth of information. Take care!
Ps. I also recommend you visit www.ccfa.org for more information.
