You should only use the Pedisure if the child is in real need of it. You need to figure out what he will eat and not eat and then work with him on getting him to eat things. Offer healthy items and leave the junk, sweets, and juice out of the equation.

Do not give in to his fits because he can not have what he wants. I have seen too many kids get things their way because parents would not put their foot done and make them learn. Unless a child has a sensory issue of some sort, They need to eat regular foods. Only children with medical issues usually get pedisure or something similar to it because they have low weight, nutritional issues, or sometimes get tube feedings and the doctors say they need the pedisure. You have to pick your battles. I lucked out with my picky eater who would still eat meats and fruits and fruits do contain the same nutrients that veggies do.
