Children of all ages commonly have a few food dislikes. A picky eater is a child with many food dislikes.
At age 2 or 3, up to 20 percent of children are picky eaters. It is normal for most young children to dislike foods with a bitter or spicy taste. Sometimes children dislike foods because of their color, but more often it's because they are difficult to chew. Children accept tender meats better than tough ones, and well-cooked vegetables better than raw.
Occasionally a child who gags on large pieces of all foods has large tonsils that make it difficult to swallow.
A solution might be to offer a variety of raw or still-crunchy cooked vegetables and let your kids choose what they want.
The "two-bite" approach. Insist that your children take at least two bites of a new food. But also try to keep their tastes in mind when you decide which vegetables to serve.And if they still refuse, don't be tempted to force your children to eat their vegetables. In fact, many adults report that they won't eat some vegetables just because they were required to do so as a child.
