Our little girl is pretty girly, give her anything pink or purple and she's happy. She gets extra excited for her veggies when I hand her a purple bean or we have purple grilled potatoes with dinner. Dark colored vegetables are especially healthy too. They contain more antioxidants than their lighter counterparts.
