Addressing a Picky and Disruptive Eater

Question

I have one boy, almost 4, who is a good eater and another, age 3, who is not. They eat together before my husband and I do and the bad eater cries about food he doesn't like, tries to pass food to his brother, walks around, climbs on the table and tries to get his brother misbehaving as well.
I set a timer for 30 minutes. When I step away he really kicks it up a notch and becomes even louder and more disruptive. I have sent him to early bed if he doesn't finish in time but I'm not sure how to address all the disruption and misbehavior he engages in at the same time. I would appreciate some suggestions.
