The most improtant things are the basics. Children should be physically active (NOT sit in front of the TV all day!), they should not have snacks, chips or sweets in between. They should be offered a healthy balanced diet only. There are no syrups or tablets that can replace these simple truths.

You could try getting her active and outside, that should increase her appetitie which will make her eat.
