You need to review your daughter's diet and make sure that she eats a good diet and no 'junk food' such as sugr containing cold drinks, sweets, chips, burgers and fatty foods.She needs plenty of fibre rich foods and plenty of fruit and water. Exercise is vital. Fast walking while swinging her arms is a good exercise as is bike riding and swimming.
