S/he may be feeling (unintentional) plate pressure. Although trying new foods can be very enjoyable, it can sometimes be stressful for kids.
But you can make it more fun, by teaching your kids the art of tasting. :) It's an important, and fairly simple, process to hone. And the ideas at link are pretty similar to our approach to tasting.

You can have your little ones help mix the different herbs together in a bowl and sort them in the ice cube tray- and they can even pour the olive oil in. :)

How are we doing it? By exposing Chicago’s elementary school children to healthy foods in a fun and interactive way through the Delicious, Nutritious Adventures program.
Today, we are in 30 Chicagoland schools. We teach more than 5,000 children a year, but, with over 330,000 kids between 5 and 14 in the Chicagoland area, we know we need to do more.
Our goal is to expand Delicious, Nutritious Adventures to 10 new classrooms, teaching over 300 more kids about healthy eating.
Help us reach our goal – donate a classroom for $1500, a single class for $166, or any amount big or small to help combat childhood obesity. http://purpleasparagus.com/gift-the-gift-of-good-nutrition/
And again, Thank you!

Purple Asparagus will teach Delicious Nutritious Adventures™ monthly in 18 Chicago Public Schools during the 2012-13 school year. Taught during the school day, each monthly class highlights a seasonal ingredient starting with apples in October and ending with berries in June.
The first part of the class is an exploration. The kids get to touch, feel, smell, and, of course, taste. The second half is a cooking lesson. Children learn how to make three simple recipes accomplished from start to finish at their desks.
