Could a 3yr old fake a reaction?

As I picked up my child from preschool today the teacher informs me that my child faked an allergic reaction to chicken in his lunch because he didn't like it. She said that he coughed and gagged when he would take a bite. They she asked him what was wrong and he said he didn't like chicken. She told him that he didn't need to eat them and he was fine.

I thought about it and the other day when Nathan was eating baked beans he was coughing and gagging too and then he told me he didn't like them. I told him not to eat them and then he was fine.

Could he really be faking this or are these foods suddenly making him cough and gag? Is a 3yr old smart enough to fake a reaction to not eat something?
