Dear Pranz
I think it will be worth your while to see a dietician to work out an individualized eating plan for your daughter. She needs to get nutrients from all the food groups: protein, fruit and vegetables, complex carbohydrates, fat and diary. Try to think "colourful" food - mix greens, yellows, oranges - this will ensure a good mixture of vitamins and minerals. Start with smaller portions, maybe more often rather than 3 huge meals per day.
