More general psychological question ?

Okay, so this is a generalized question. I’m very much into psychology of people and I haven’t figured this one out. I’m more curious than anything. (I’m a woman if that is important in this scenario) so this is an in law of mine who is male. Majority of the time when I offer something to him such as a food I’m making or partaking in an activity (which I offer to everyone else in the room as well) he’ll often say, no thank you. However, within seconds or minutes he’ll consume or partake in the very thing he just denied 🤯 

Any idea why this is? We have a good relationship it seems. Not like he’s angry at me. Just an odd behavior. Not sure if it’s somehow an ego thing or he’s uncomfortable being on the receiving end? What are your thoughts?
