Hungry Monkey also talks about 3 as the age in which kids start being able to categorize things but not separate things from categories. A common category is that of "green food". Green plants are often bitter and sometimes poisonous, and a three year old (who was perfectly happy with avocado and spinach as a 2 year old) might temporarily refuse any green foods until ze figures out the difference between them.

Here's our post on the topic: http://nicoleandmaggie.wordpress.com/2011/08/30/picky-eating-stage-passed-level-up/

I wish my Mom had been more relaxed about eating when I was a kid! I'd have enjoyed meal times a lot more.

You can have them both at the same time for breakfast in England. They have the delicious black pudding made from pig's blood there.

Bardiac -- Yes! I had parents who did the clean-your-plate thing. I spent more than one evening sitting until midnight at a table by myself with a plate filled with food in front of me.
