You do not need to give her anything for her appetite, but obviously she cannot continue to only drink a soya milk now. She must join the family at all meals.Put her food in front of her and give her a spoon and let her feed herself. Do not watch her eat. Only give her 2 cups of milk a day now and her other fluids should be water, dilute fruit juice and rooibos if she likes this.She may leave all her food at first, but will gradually start eating. Do not say a word if she leaves her food. She will start eating by herself.
