I have similiar problems with 4 year old. I am attending pep class. People suggest me to secretly mixed vegetables with other stuff. For example, take a can of baby squash and mix it with mac and cheese, If dish has red souce you can cut vegetables real thing and add to it. Kid will get what he needs without knowing it.
You are the one with the shopping list. Ooops, no pizza, only this. Put the good stuff there for him. If he doesn't eat it, tip it out and then he waits til his next regular eating time. No arguments, no fussing, no blame or naughty boying. It should not be a discipline thing or a battle of wits. Give him access to healthy grazing, eg, sultanas, banana slices, cheese sticks, etc etc between meals. Good luck.
Who's the parent in your house? Cook a healthy meal and put it in front of him. Tell him this is supper. No pizza or sweets. Don't buy him sweets. Buy fruit. If you don't get strict with him now, he will become an obese child and develop diabetes. You need to take charge and take good care of your kid by feeding him appropriate food.
