If you allow him to eat chips, junk foods, cold drinks, tea, bread. You cannot expect him to be interested in a home made nutritional food. You will have to teach him to eat fruits and vegetables. Make rotis or paranthe with atta plus other flours like soya, chana, ragi etc. Add vegetables in the dough. Make mix vegetables cutlets, idli, dalia etc. Include ghee, nuts, soya, dals, paneer, egg in his diet. Unless he learns to eat a nutritious diet, he cannot gain weight and a malnourished child will continue to fall sick often as his immunity is low.

You need to talk to him about the benefits of a healthy diet. There are many children's programs available online to educate children about healthy living. If you could make him appreciate its importance ,then he will happily adapt the healthy food. Have patience and go slow. Limit the junk food and introduce healthy food which is made with a tasty flavor at home. Allow him to play outdoors (or any physical activity ). If his cold is severe or recurrent then you can try Homeopathy. You can contact me for a detailed consultation so that a remedy suitable for his constitution can be given.
