Thanks for writing to us.
For a diet in a child with G6PD deficiency, you can put her on a mixed healthy diet full of nutrients and carbohydrates and proteins. A dietitioan will help you in charting out a schedule for her according to your preferences and convenience.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
