This going to sounds really strange but have you considered tongue tie? My sisters child who is now 3 struggles with certain textures etc and it's believed to be because of his tie.

Help with fussy 3yo and eating
Following. I have a four year old very fussy eater, and I am stuck. Only consolation is at least she'll eat a few fruit and raw veggies with me. We even bake cakes (when she won't eat) and she'll decline, offering it to Daddy instead
My Dad used to make me sit until I had finished dinner, and it created some exceptionally bad food habits. I refuse to do that with DD because I want her to be able to know when she's hungry/full and not feeling bad for not finishing her food.

DS is similar with food. He is getting better with fruit but not veg. And finally has started eating meat.
I agree with a lot of the above posts. I *try* not to force him to eat. I do ask him sometimes to taste everything on his plate but I do not make him finish.
We 'collaborate' a little on food choices but usually it is a tasting plate of mostly what he eats and 1 or 2 things that are new or that I have given him to eat and failed. Or if I know he likes/d what we eat on a particular day he gets some too (all separated on his plate i.e. rice in a pile, chicken (without sauce) on its own on another pile etc etc). He does not like things mixed together unless he chooses to do it.
I also found that he would eat certain foods in places that aren't home/childcare. For example he does not eat carrot but he will eat the carrot in our salads from a specific Vietnamese restaurant.
I also noticed you said your daughter was trying to eat but was gagging so I wonder if it is sensory related.
