Green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots. If you serve them in the right way, she will be more likely to eat them. Try steaming them. My nephews and nieces love these items. Green beans are "green french fries" to them. Broccoli is "baby trees". Cauliflower is "crunchy clouds". And carrots, they just like because they have a sweet sort of flavor to them. Oh and you can slice the small radishes very thin so they are like coins, cucumbers, and sliced up red peppers, and cherry tomatoes, too. These are all things that the kids in our family tend to love. Of course, they also like pasta and pizza and other fast food -- we just try to make these at home with wholesome ingredients to eliminate some of the preservatives and chemicals. You can make spaghetti out of zucchini or yellow squash if you buy the tool that slices it that way (inexpensive), and it actually tastes quite good. My 3 year old nephew loves it as much as actual spaghetti.

If you present foods to her in an appealing way, she might try them. The more colorful the combination, the more appealing.
