In brief: Serve it
Tell him that is the only food provided.
If he doesn't want it put it in the refigerator and serve it for the next meal. You are only responsible for providing the food. Get rid of all the "junk" in the house and do not substitute if and when he complains of hunger. Good parenting requires us to be "cruel to be kind".
