 The most common cause for that is when the nail has been injured or bruised, like something smashed it or she hit it against something accidentally. sometimes they will even fall off and then regrow.

Wow, no I have never heard of that, black is a sign of  bad circulation. I would get it checked out.

 Its happened to my kids quite a few times, most commonly the toe on my youngest son thanks to his bike stunts lol

I've only seen a nail turn black when it has been injured. Did your dd get her finger slammed by anything or has she had a hand injury?

Yeah injury will do that.

 If she hasn't injured it I would call the doctor.  It shouldn't be turning black.

dont think its from not eating veggies as my 14 yo DD NEVER eats vegetables and none of hers has turned black so its most likely what the others have said
