Many children of this age go through a period of time when they eat poorly.They especially do not like to eat vegetables. Make sure that mealtimes are happy and peaceful. The whole family must be together for mealtimes. Don't make a fuss if she won't eat and don't try and force her to eat anything. Give her the foods she likes and ignore they way she eats as much as possible.You will be surprised how she starts to eat when the pressure is taken off her.
Viral Guard Junior is a good immune booster.
