My girls were both picky eaters before gluten free, they were also cured of their picky eating by the gluten free diet! I think once their little tummy's aren't hurting anymore they're much more open to food. My girls are 2 and 3 1/2 and they have AMAZING appetites and are pretty open to trying new things. They're new favorite thing to eat for lunch is salmon salad or egg salad wrapped up in a cabbage leave as a "wrap". They pretty much clear their plates most of the time now. I think a big thing is getting them involved in the process of picking and cooking foods.
