My problem with the term picky eaters is that it implies that everyone must like every food out there. If someone doesn't like a certain musical artist, they have a different taste in music. If you don't like Stephen King, no one calls you picky about your reading. Why is it okay to call someone picky because they don't like a certain food. And for the record, I'm with the OP on tomatoes, which is probably why I never force my daughter to eat mushrooms (one of my favorite's), because it is okay for her to not like them.
